If you sit still, you will hear them. The billions and billions of seedlings in my classroom (over 200 tomato alone, plus a good number of a large variety of peppers, and just today we divided up the silver dollars, dahlias, lemon balm, and creeping thyme that had sprouted and brought about true leaves). These seedlings are as loud as a nest full of hungry birds wondering where the next meal is coming from. And was that one of the three types of eggplants I saw sprouting this morning. Clearly the Calendula is up and coming to seek the light.
and of course life at home is bustling as some how we planned 4 craft shows in 7 weeks.
and then there is my shoulder that ached so much I went to a doctor. OT and ice and heat and exercises... it is feeling better. My home garden has declared that the shoulder is good enough and fully expects to see me on Sunday.
And the seedlings cry out for attention and care and then they get bossy. "We need more space! What are all these house plants doing in this classroom? You have no right to be here." So we have been selling them off, but still more space is needed.
I have some ideas to make space. I have no choice as the greenhouse is not the place for them yet. The seedlings rule at Pathway. And all in all this is so much better than those doldrums between making the seed order and the mayhem of spring.
