Green is life

Every year around this time, hubby starts the seedlings for another full year of gardening. It’s a season of hope and optimism for good harvests that we can eat and preserve (until voles, vine-borers and other vermin destroy that dream).

This year, with so much fear and uncertainty in the air (not making a joke here), starting seedlings is even more important as an act of defiant hope and self-preservation.

So here is what we’ve started so far…

These other ones are on a warming mat and are therefore in the somewhat filthy utility room:

but no less cute…the right side
and the left side

Are you growing something for hope and food this year?
