In an earlier post, I mentioned that I was attempting to start plants from seed this year, and for the most part, they've done well. After the seedlings sprouted, I put them in a south-facing window, and I also hung an inexpensive fluorescent light from the ceiling to give them some extra TLC. Today I put some of the spring vegetables outside for a few hours to "harden them off." I'll do the same tomorrow and Friday, and then on Saturday I may actually get a chance to plant! My poor seed potatoes have been sitting in a box for a couple weeks now, so they're getting planted a bit late due to moving the rest of our stuff up from Other House last weekend. My friend, Christy, told me last year that she heard potatoes should be planted around St. Patrick's Day. Whoops. Let's hope they have the luck of the Irish.
