We’ll be planting our first real vegetable (and fruit and herb) garden this Spring, a milestone we’ve been excitedly preparing for since oh, about January. We’re starting most of the crops from seed, so we decided to get a number of them started in small pots on the windowsill in our apartment. We may have jumped the gun somewhat on our preparations, getting most of our seeds planted in late January. A few of the plants are ready to be transplanted now, but we’re likely still a solid month away from favourable outdoor conditions (ie. an unfrozen ground and no overnight frost).
In the meantime though, we’re a little bit like kids on Christmas in our excitement everytime a new bit of green sprouts through the soil, so that’s a plus!
