It has been sixteen days since I sowed the lettuce seeds in the new Burpee seed starting kit. They’re progressing nicely. I’ll have to transplant them into larger cells before I can harden them off and move them into their beds. Judging from the root growth, I should do that within the week. The other plants are doing well: 6 Calabrese broccoli, 5 Cal Wonder orange bell peppers, 4 Ring-O-Fire cayenne peppers, 1 Bloomsdale Spinach, 10 Sweet Alyssum, 1 Verbena and 4 Mexican Mint Marigold. I’ve got 6 jalapeno seeds and 6 habanero seeds planted as well. We’ll see what they do. Here in a couple of weeks I’ll be starting a bunch more seeds for several different types of veggies and flowers.
A garden is the best alternative therapy.

the crucible of life,
