It’s official, Southern California has had its first days over 75 degrees in 2019, and we are ready to start spring seedlings. Perhaps it’s too early? It is January after all. It’s hard to tell, but after weeks of rain, the earth is soft enough to be worked with, which can be rare! I am holding visions of bouncy, vibrant spring flowers. Fingers crossed!!
It’s only been a few days since we planted and we are already in that phase where you wake up every morning and rush to see if anything has happened overnight while whispering encouragement to the damp soil. Maybe that's just us? We are eagerly awaiting some kind of sign that the process is moving forward. I mean, it’s been 2 days!
As I write this, I can feel in my bones, that it’s such good practice to be in this process. We are feeling similar to these tiny pots of fertile soil these days.
