Any time a seed sprouts and sends up new shoots, it is exciting.
The onions have been up for a while, but somehow, I can’t get enthusiastic about them.
The calendula were put into soil less than a week ago, and they have popped up wonderfully.
But there is something about the first glimpse of a tomato seedling.
No matter how tiny, the first glimpse of green on a plant that will feed us opulently this year, is a miracle. This calls for rejoicing.
This hint of green is better than any St. Patrick’s Day finery.
