Not that long ago, I started to fill the greenhouses with flats of soil and seeds sprinkled with water and topped with plastic greenhouse lids. It is an exercise in optimism, starting a garden from seed. You start with the most humble of ingredients, keep them warm, trust them to do their thing.
And then, in the blink of an eye, they do.
It never fails to fill me with awe and wonder and joy when I see little green growing things poking up out of the dirt.
