itchy green thumb

Last summer the kids very much enjoyed picking our crop of little tomatoes (yield=23) and harvesting our basil and parsley, so I thought that this year we should go big and actually plant a vegetable garden.

After months of research (ok, reading two books from the library), we picked out some seeds, planted them in our handy indoor greenhouse (plastic containers with lids), and are currently hoping for the best.

Some plants are actually beginning to sprout (go, peppers, go!) and others are apparently taking their sweet time (lazy cilantro).  With a bit of luck, the vermin of the neighborhood should be eating pretty well come summer .
