Gardening in 2020

I’ll admit this year has been a challenge, which is why gardening seems more important than ever.  I started my garden in-doors as I often do. I am looking forward to planting this year. I have started about 36 plants so far. I collect disposable plastics and other packaging during the winter and use them for gardening in the spring.

The tray in the picture once held cupcakes, and there is a pineapple can full of coleus hanging by the kitchen sink and a cottage cheese container that I planted cucumbers in a couple of days ago.

There is something magical about starting from seeds and watching them grow. I’ll move them to a cold frame that I built out of old storm windows in a week or so.

I love homegrown vine-ripened tomatoes and look forward to them all winter.
