The seeds are all here, the potting soil arrived last week, and as of yesterday, Blue Cloud Farm's 2014 growing season officially has begun!
This first round of seeding included: snapdragons, dianthus, stock, eucalyptus, onions, and an aquilegia variety that's supposed to bloom the first year from seed! Pictured in my hand are little snapdragon seeds. I'm always amazed when I think of the fact that all the seeds I'll need to fill 1/4 acre with flowers can easily fit inside my mailbox at once.
I'm not trying to rush anything, and have truly been enjoying the snow and cold this winter, but I got pretty excited when I saw this bluebird and its buddies flying around out back the other day. Warmer, flower-filled days aren't too far off!
