Category Archives: Just plant the seed
This week while I was at work, I happened to mention that I was excited that spring is finally here and that we can’t hardly wait to get the early seed crop into the ground. Wow the discussion that went on next was amazing as so many chimed in on how it is to early to plant, it is just cheaper to get your produce at the store and blah, blah, blah.
My thoughts are I don’t care we are just going to “Plant The Seed” and if we get 1 plant or no plants it doesn’t matter. What matters is we (my wife and I ) enjoy being with each other and we enjoy being outside in the garden and experimenting with the elements.If we waited till everything was perfect to plant then we would miss out on opportunities of just enjoying the goodness of the season or day.
So this week we are going to get these seeds pictured here below into the ground and will post what happens along the way, if they grow and produce us a crop then wonderful if not we will do it again. What is important is enjoying the goodness of the day that the Lord has given us, enjoying each other and time spent out in the garden!
We will upgrade this post as the months progress along, let’s see what will happen just “Plant The Seed”.

Time for an update. 4/17/2015
We woke up this morning to 6 inch’s of snow, went to work came home and it was all melted. Typical weather for Colorado Springs. On the drive to work which is only 5 miles away we ran into snow, hail, heavy rain and then sunshine all within that 5 mile drive. Any how got home saw that the snow was gone and went out to see how the seeds were coming along.
Here is what the snow looked like this morning April 17, 2015
Romaine lettuce rows are looking good, snow did not bother them.
Carrots are coming up!
Pea’s are starting to pop out of the ground.
Kale is starting to show up.
Nothing that I can see from the broccoli, cauliflower, brussel sprouts, red onions, or swiss chard yet.
