Back in March we started with a pile of seed packets from High Mowing Organic Seeds, a few bags of organic seed starting mix, and a bunch of containers. I should mention the folding table and light leftover from a restaurant remodel as well. I had my doubts about the set up but with the aid of aluminum foil for reflective purposes (the husband’s idea) the seeds became plants under their artificial sun. Without fail a seed becoming a plant amazes me every time!
Once all of the plants were tucked into place the kids and I headed over to my Dad’s house. Essentially this is where the Green Brick Road starts because his land is where I grew up and where I had my first little garden bed. For the sake of full disclosure I was a terrible gardener as a child and soon lost interest in tending my plants. Thank you Mom for saving their lives! Watching my children run around in my old stomping grounds always brings back great memories of a happy childhood. I couldn’t have asked for a better place to grow up.
