Today I took up the challenge to try a new technique of seed starting—my grandson and I planted some pepper seeds.

The pepper seeds are from last year’s get-together, shared by daltxguy. Thank-you.

We had fun.

It feels good to get the hands dirty, even better with a helper. Good luck this season Ms.DebbieP

He looks like he is having a great time, I am sure you were enjoying yourself at least as much as he.

He was okay with the dirt getting dumped on the floor but when it landed on his socks—well, that was another story!!! End of gardening for today.

Garden helpers are so much fun – I love having my Sofie help me, even when it doesn’t really make things go faster or as planned.
