Things are moving, beneath the earth.

We were afraid to start our seeds before our big trip, and the weather had been rather cold and snowy before we left, so we didn't get our seeds in the ground until April 2nd. That being said, our cheap grow light setup in the laundry room has proven to be an extremely good idea.

Yes, I know the grow light shouldn't be that far above the seedlings, but really we need two lights.
So far we've started cherry tomatoes, paste tomatoes, zucchini, mini pumpkins, sugar pie pumpkins, Rouge vif D'Etampes pumpkins, Moon and Stars watermelons, sunflowers, rainbow carrots, danvers carrots, cayenne peppers, Bolivian rainbow peppers, bell peppers, jalapenos, and broccoli.

We're also attempting to grow mushrooms, but they seem to have dried out...

In happier news, the bulbs I planted in the fall that I was sure hadn't made the winter have actually come up! I managed to forget exactly what it was I'd planted, so when they bloom it will be a wonderful surprise!

Silly Ponyo, you're supposed to smell the flowers after they bloom!
