Sometimes, life astounds you. Not my life, I mean LIFE! I planted seeds yesterday after lunch. And today, I already have seedlings up.
First up (cotyledons fully up) Michihli Cabbage (a chinese cabbage) from Baker Creek. Followed closely by Copenhagen Market from Seed Savers Exchange. The Copenhagen Market seeds are even from last year. We got them from my brother last fall. He had received them at some luncheon or other and they don't really garden so, they were bequeathed to us.
I'm still amazed that less than 36 hours after planting I've got anything up. Wow! But I'll tell you, it is a fabulous feeling to see those tiny little green growing things. It gives me hope.
I'm trying something new tonight. Well, not totally new to me, but not something I've done for a long time. I'm making yogurt. The children all adore yogurt and will totally devour it if I bring any home. So, I decided to make some myself and see if I get the same reaction. Hopefully they still like it. I know that homemade yogurt isn't always like what you get in the neat little packages in the store. But we'll see. It should be fun.
My parents are coming tomorrow for lunch and will then be going with us to a concert. J17's last Preucil School of Music concert. This is the one where they have ALL the students of all levels perform. They start with the oldest, most experienced students on the stage, playing the hardest music. Then song by song, they add more students to the stage, with the pieces getting progressively easier. They finally end with the youngest ones (the Twinklers) arriving on stage and everyone together plays Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star- the first song they ever learn. It is usually a lovely concert. Long but lovely. Since J17 is a senior this year, this is her last one.
More another time...
