I was tempted to take a side trip with the boys to the garden last night. It didn't happen due to time constraints, but the temptation was there, Had I gone, I probably would have found the lovely site that awaited me this morning: all kinds of little baby plants coming up. We've got peas a-plenty, and radishes and lettuce all over. The leeks appear still to be going strong (rumor has it that to get big leeks, you let them overwinter; I have my doubts that this batch will live to see that day), but no bean sprouts yet... unless the evil quail have stolen them. Also no dill nor fennel, but given that my seed stock dated from 1996, I'm not terribly surprised.
