Spring Fever Made This

The warm weather got my gardening instincts going. I started some tomato seeds and some basil seeds. The top photo is the basil. They look like tiny green mushrooms. The tomato plants take a long time to get big enough to transplant. That is why I started them so early. I planted some heirloom varieties and some hybrids. Only one kind has yet to sprout. We will see what the next few days bring. 

If you want to start tomato seeds, now is the time. My friend Kristie had the idea of keeping the soil warm on the clothes dryer. I think it made a difference. After they sprout they need sun, so into the dining room they have moved. Mine sprouted in about 7 days. They still have about 2 months before they get to go live outside. They have a lot of growing to do! I will keep you posted on their progress.
