I’m a big “start your seeds indoors” chicken.
I had lofty goals. I had a list of seeds I wanted to start indoors. I had dates written next to the seeds as to when they need to be planted.
And those dates have come and gone.
Partly because I forgot. Mostly because I’m a chicken.
So when I saw the sign out front of the local nursery that we drive by every day on the way to and from school, this chicken ran right in!
“Cold Weather Veggies are In”
The marquee. It’s also mostly to blame for my chicken-ness this year.
You see, they’d already done all the work for me. And they knew what they were doing. So the little plants would be thriving.
I bought a few buttercrisp lettuce starters, some cabbage and some kale (which you can barely see the edge of a leaf.) They are currently sitting in my quiche dish, that I keep a steady supply of water in the base of, to keep them hydrated. The quiche dish sits right in our front bay window and gets sun most of the morning and part of the afternoon. A partial greenhouse. But not really.
They will be making their way outside. Today.
And with them, I’ll be burying the chicken part of me as well.
Perhaps next year I will get some seeds planted indoors!
