There is something so exciting about those first seeds emerging. Like the jonquils that pop up, sometimes through the snow, they are little messengers from Mother Nature, sent to let us know that winter will end soon and Spring is on its way. I'm excited about the prospect of having the tomatoes and eggplants emerge soon, and sowing more seeds. I've already set the fluorescent lights over these two sprouting babies to make sure they get about 15 hours of light a day. I was able to turn the lights off for most of the day today because we had beautiful glorious sunshine streaming in the greenhouse, making artificial light necessary only when the sun faded.
Yes, Spring is on the way! There may be more dull, gray days of winter before us, maybe even some snowy days, but there will be more sunny days, too, and Spring WILL come!
