Finally shook the dust off my green thumb and went to a new garden store on wednesday, they carry a couple different brands of organic seeds
, plus other mfgrs, not cheap by any means but when I saw the often hyped 'brandywine' packet it went into the basket right quick.
Yesterday I made a point of tiring out the kids outside to gaurantee a long nap, after they were taken care of, brought in my collection of potting stuff and searched for pie tins, old tupperware, and a cleaning caddy, to act as water catch basins under the various sized pots. Then came the planting of seeds

I had everything potted, extra stuff put back outside, and was just finishing cleaning the counter/sink in the kitchen when my wife drove up the driveway, whew. Now everything is up in my room where there is window to the east and another to the south so they will get good sunlight, and be around 70-72* by day and lower 60*'s by night.
