I miss the luxury of growing my own.
I grow, but not during the winter, I don’t have the necessary space. I grow from spring to fall and miss it this time of year. I miss it so much. Especially as it’s been looking like this (below) lately…
I miss having food growing and available, in my backyard. I miss being self-sufficient (at least in terms of veggies). I miss the luxury of walking outside (despite the mosquito issue around here), snipping away (usually quickly – the mosquitos), and then coming back inside with a basket full of fresh greens and then some…I do miss my backyard veggies..
Enough, melancholy – Februarys’ brighter light and longer days have reminded me – Spring is inevitable.
even if it doesn’t seem so now…it will come.
Normally I would have started plantings already, but this year I’ve had to hold off – at least until we return from our long overdue trip! I am so excited to be going away (we haven’t taken a trip in over 5 years!!), though I do wish I could have started my plantings already – the season is short enough around here !! But starting trays and trays of seedlings made no sense. I didn’t want to ask anyone to look after them while we were away, that just felt like way too much to ask of anyone…so, the seeds will sit and wait a few more weeks…as will I…
I’ve bought my veg seeds but it’s too cold yet – despite the warmest day of the year so far.
It will continue to warm up – thankfully! (:
I’m eagerly awaiting my return to Poland so I can get cracking with the seeds 🙂 Soon, very soon..
Safe travels to you!! Plant away…(:
I know you feel. The kale from the grocery store just doesn’t taste the same as the kale from the garden! Enjoy your trip!
Thank you Kate – Spring is inevitable! (:
Enjoy your trip–the garden will be there, the earth will be warmer, and you will never know the difference.
Thank you Ly!!
Started my Chinese celery and eggplant but must wait a bit longer before starting others.
Looking forward to photos of your seedlings!
I know the feeling! The little seedlings bring the miracle of spring and regrowth to the counter top and later into the garden. I am waiting for spring too and I have a few packets of seeds collected as well! Have a wonderful trip!
It is so true.. Thank you!
