Our winter sowing record for 2-19-11:

Busy, busy! We used up the rest of the 16 quart (I think!) bag of potting mix, so that filled roughly 22 containers.

#15 Lettuce Black Seeded Simpson-Salad Container garden & maybe under bean trellis in summer?
#16  Baby Leaf Spinach-Salad container garden
#17 Petunia-Dwarf Bedding Mix-Containers
#18 Snap Dragons-Tall Mixed-3 to 3 1/2 feet? Is that right?-Cutting garden?
#19 Viola-Johnny Jump Ups-borders
#20 ”
#21 Bachelor Buttons-Cyanus Double Mixed-Cutting garden
#22 ”

One thing that really struck me when we were opening flower seed packets was the marvel of the different looks of the seeds. And how the seed size didn’t necessarily correspond to the grown flower. The three foot tall Snap Dragon seeds were absolutely miniscule, like a black grain of sand. The Bachelor Buttons had this funny tufted part sticking out. And just thinking about the whole process from seed to flower made me thank God for doing such amazing work!
