But, it just didn't occur to me to put a baby in the dirt like the picture in that article! To be honest, it gives me a bit of the heebie jeebies, thinking of all the bugs I've seen in the soil, his hands digging in it, and then his hands in his mouth. Obviously I'm all about gardening, but that's a bit much even for me. I guess if I watch him very carefully with a wet washcloth ready, it would be fun.
As for the garden, I'm so excited it is coming alive. There is a bunch of mache that reseeded itself that is just about ready for harvest. Radishes, lettuce, and arugula that I planted outside a few weeks ago are all germinated. This weekend I planted carrots, turnips, red & green mustard greens, scallions, more lettuce, and more peas outside.
Inside my seedlings are doing really well! (much better than last year) Under the lights I've got 10 tangerine gem marigolds, 4 swiss chard, 6 lettuces, 6 tomatoes and 2 ground cherries. The marigolds and 3 of the tomatoes almost have their 2nd set of leaves, so it will be time to repot soon.
