baby garden

Here's my baby plants. Or maybe I should say 'here are my plants I'm babying along.' I have several trays that are under grow lights/in a sunny window (if the weather is cold outside) or (if the weather is gorgeous, like today) sitting in the sun out on my lawn. I've really struggled with starting plants from seeds. It has taken me years to get to the point where I feel like I have any idea what I'm doing. Like Thomas Jefferson said, "I'm a very old man but a very young gardener." You can see the plants are in either toilet paper tubes or in rolls of newspaper. I like to have them separated into individual plants. When they get too big for their britches I put them in a bigger pot.
