We put a few things into the ground a couple of weeks ago, back when we were still wearing our winter jackets and wondering if the seeds would freeze. This year I am being conservative, and have chosen things that can survive with little weeding and are good value in terms of yield: sorrel, dill, sweet peas, sunflowers, peppermint. Jem did most of the work, digging up the soil - with two trusty helpers - while I had the pleasure of just putting in the seeds. It's exciting to think which of them will be already sprouting next time we go to the country!

One Response so far.

    I love planting too but haven't done seeds recently. Such a surprise to see them sprout. It looks so green! We r getting our winter coats out so we are doing the seasonal swap dance. Enjoy spring!
