Sowing and a Growing! I’m the luckiest girl in the world. Because I get to get my hands dirty, and  sow and grow all day long. All day. Everyday

It is sooo not boring.

For company, I bring a small DVD player into the greenhouse and playa selection of 80’s movies.

And it’s not at all weird that I share favorite movie lines with my little seedlings. It’s not like I’m expecting for them to enjoy them as much as I do.

So my world now consists of seeds, dirt and water. And patience.

Patience is something I’ve never been especially good at. Which is strange that my chosen profession involves quite a bit of patience.

But each time I am rewarded with these little green seedlings I feel like  master of the universe (did you just pick up on one of my guilty-pleasures 80’s movie reference?)

I’m amazed that we started sowing in January and even though we have lots to show for it, but there is still so much to do. We’ll be sowing every week until July. And once we reach May it will be time to add outdoor and hoop house garden tasks.

Prepping the garden beds. Laying drip tape. pining landscape fabric. Transplanting.

Thinning. Watering (of course). Pinching-back. And Harvesting. Getting tired just thinking about it.

And in between all the seeding, I keep cutting back my scented geraniums. Making new baby scented geraniums. Now that is true magic! One day you just have this sad small leaf, and in 6 weeks you’re amazed it’s grown so much. I think that must be how parents feel when when dropping their babies off to kindergarden.

And that’s why I feel like the luckiest girl in the world. I get to do what I love!
