How Does Your Garden Grow?

Despite the snow (SNOW!) today, our little garden is in full swing. We planted peppers, beans, cucumbers, tomatoes, zuchini, pumpkins, and lettuce over the weekend, all of which are sitting on the windowsill in our laundry room, nice and warm, waiting for the last frost to pass. Today the strong bend of the beanstalks and the delicate tendrils of lettuce peeked out of the soil - our garden has officially begun to grow! I'm very excited - especially for the coming of warm weather.

We're also continuing our indoor "gardening" by investing in some real sprouting equipment. It's nothing, really, just some quart mason jars and some screen, but it does make sprouting much easier than the cheesecloth contraption we've been using. We're experimenting with quinoa sprouts, and looking forward to making some yummy fresh gluten- free bread with them this weekend. I'll let you know how it goes.
