I'm so excited that I just had to share...
These lovely little green lettuce sprouts were planted Saturday and took only 3.5 days to germinate! I was utterly thrilled when I came downstairs yesterday morning to discover them. :)
Because our last frost date is in May, we have to start many of our seeds indoors. We thought we were doing well last year, but after a great start, our seedlings grew too tall and every last one of them toppled. What a disappointment!
Thankfully, we found these videos on the Territorial Seed Company's website and discovered the solution to our problem -- we need more light than our windows provide!
Enter this wonderful contraption on loan from my green-thumbed brother:
Lord willing, we'll have more success with our indoor starts this year, and we'll be eating some wonderful homegrown salads in just a few short weeks. :) I can't wait!
