spring seeding!

I realized last week that this is the first spring since 2009 that I haven't had dirty fingernails and soil-dried hands... and it's weird. In some ways, my first ventures into seeding on a farm in the Hudson Valley seem like they were long ago; and in some ways, they seem like only yesterday. 

For those of you who have read this blog, you may remember this little diddy, illustrating the wonderful world of seedling and soil blocking. Well, there's no video this time, but last night Pat and I took to the soil again, seeding up some peppers, lettuce, and basil for some growing at home. We have joined a CSA for the season, which will provide us with wonderful veggies all summer... but you can never have enough pesto, salad or extra peppers for the freezer!
