During my 12 years of apartment living, I longed for outdoor space, so I knew that when we bought a house, a vegetable garden would be a 'must-have'.
The first year we planted our garden I was 9 months pregnant so I was more of a supervisor than a planter. My Mom and Dad came down for the day and Shawn and my Dad did most of the grunt work.
I was a little over-eager and I started my first batch of seedlings on Feb 21.
Way. Too. Early.
I knew it was early, but I was very excited and I just wanted to see what would happen.
I didn't have any special equipment or anything. No fancy grow lights, or heating pads. Just some plastic trays, a watering can, and some seeds.
The best light in our house is in the kitchen so that's where we kept the seed trays, until.....well.....someone got a little too interested.

|The cayenne peppers were the only seedlings from the February 21 planting that made it into the garden.|
Amelia had a great time helping with the seedlings, and she and Otis love walking up and down the new garden path.
I promise to post an update later in the season.
