Grow Babies Grow!

Oh, look at my little seedlings of love! I planted the mesclun salad mix seeds on Sunday, and look how far they've come! They've sprung these shoots that are starting to grow leaves, and now what the hell am I supposed to do?

Usually this is where my projects end. I get an idea, I buy supplies, and dig right in. The project goes smoothly long enough for me to feel a sense of pride and accomplishment, and then I think holy cow! Now what the hell am I supposed to do? One day I'll actually do some research and formulate a plan, but for now I'll just shoot from the hip. Heck with this many sprouts the odds are one of them will survive for its debut on my dinner table, right? It could be worse. I could be trying to raise something like, I don't know, chickens.

Oh, yeah, chickens! Hmm...


  1. Wow! They grew since yesterday. If you change your mind about planting them, you can just eat the sprouts; I hear they are very nutritious! Or you could donate a couple to my garden!

  2. Great idea Heather -- I never thought about eating the sprouts. You're welcome to some of the plants, or if you'd like to start from scratch there's plenty of seeds left!
