I had a nice surprise this morning. Some of the seeds I'd planted a few days ago (Wednesday, I think) have sprouted!! It is the lettuce seeds that Dee had sent me that have sprouted first! Go lettuce!! I was so insanely thrilled when I saw them that I ran and got my camera to take pictures of my first sprouts. This is the first time I've grown something from seed and having it sprout is just such an amazing feeling! The other plants take longer to germinate so I'm not expecting to see any signs of life for a few more days yet. I'm so excited!!
In other news, I've finished reading "The Earth Path" by Starhawk and even used the seed blessing when I planted my seeds! I really enjoyed it an have already been trying to implement some changes of my own. I'm hoping to take the opportunity over the summer to try out some more of the exercises she mentions and probably even trying some of them between now and then.
