As I reported last week
I’ve started my indoor gardening season.
This is my third year for starting cabbage.
Just this week I read that the germination rate for cabbage
Is near 100%.
Wish I had known that before I planted 140 cells with seeds.
Sure enough within three days over 100 of those seeds had sprouted
And today I am the proud mother of 126 baby cabbages.
At least twice a day
Coco and I journey to the garden house
To make sure they are OK.
So far everyone is happy.
Now I don’t expect each of them to make it to maturity
But I probably will be looking for homes for some of these
Since I will have more than even Faith Farm can handle.
This week I added Flat Italian Parsley and Sweet Peas
To the line up.
So far they are still dormant
Which is fine with me
Giving me an excuse
To check on things.
Just as I was ready to plant an indoor lettuce crop
I noticed a tiny miracle in my garden.
The luscious crop that was a victim
Of the pre Christmas Artic blast
Is coming back from the roots.
Never did I imagine that.
Both areas are planted against the edge
Of the brick patio
Giving them warmth
And one area is well protected from the north.
Surviving -20 degrees!
There is a richness that comes
From these tiny miracles.
For me it adds to the depth of joy
In the cold and sunless days of winter.
Wishing tiny miracles for you this week.
