We have flowers! We’ve had several warm days for this early in spring here, but alas, we found these flowers and the next day’s high was 13. So it is with early spring in the Northeast. It tempts you to do things outdoors and dream with sunny skies and warm weather, and then it plunges you back into winter the very next day.

Nevertheless, it is a sign that spring is right around the corner and its time to start those seeds indoors. When the weather is right, we will be ready.

We normally start our seeds a little earlier in the year than this inside, but we find that we often have the seedlings ready before the weather outside is. We will start with planting cabbage and broccoli for transplant later in the year. I’ll post about our seed starting next week and I’ll try to get pictures for you. Seed starting is always a fun time of year. Do you start plants for your garden from seed or do you buy transplants? What’s your favorite thing about spring?
