Planting seeds

Today, for the first time this year, it felt like spring here in the DC suburbs.

We live in a townhouse, and have a tiny little backyard, just big enough to hang our hammock when the weather gets warm.  I plant tomatoes each year, even though there’s not really enough sunlight for them to thrive.  This morning D. found a packet of carrot seeds I had bought last year, so we planted those.  I repotted our houseplants too, giving them fresh dirt, and apologizing to them for forgetting to water them on a regular basis.

I plant seeds pretty much the same way I write to Congress — because I believe in the process, without expecting too much in the way of a harvest.

We’ll see how everything does.

    That’s how I felt yesterday too. But then I wake up to 1/2 inch of snow on the ground and more coming down.
    Winter will end someday, right??

    Chip, I read your comment and was feeling smug about living in the mid-Atlantic. And then we got caught in a hail-storm yesterday afternoon — in the 2 minutes it took us to run for the car, we got totally soaked and the boys were quite freaked out.
