According to the book T and I could've ordered a few types of seeds already as we can start planting some seeds indoors on or after March 1st (they wouldn't be moved outside for many weeks). I love how the book gives pointers how to water properly indoors vs outdoors and how to avoid growing spindly seedlings when growing inside. The book also tells how to make a temporary indoor plant bench and use florescent lighting to help the seedlings grow properly.
Wednesday was a lovely, sunny February day. T is extremely excited about starting his garden this spring. He wanted to start digging in the patch with his plastic spade (I plan to get him a preschool-sized shovel like this one from For Small Hands in the coming weeks). I joined him to poke around in the soil to see what the garden plot is like. The garden plot has lovely chocolate colored soil and is simply crawling with earthworms. Together we spent quite a bit of time observing earthworms.
