Seeds are amazing! A little soil, water and light and that's all they need. No complaining, they just push up through that soil, optimistically green and delightfully tasty. The roquette from the seeds we saved last summer was the first to arrive in bright green rows. The spinach and Swiss chard followed with their deep red stalks, just mere wisps at this point.
I couldn't resist a little nibble of the roquette, my favorite. And it didn't disappoint. All that fresh, spicy taste packed into one tiny sprout instantly transported me to my summer garden. I could practically feel the warm soil under my knees. Oooh, I can't wait to get my hands in some good soil!
