Spring is right around the corner, I believe about seven days until the vernal equinox. The first time I heard that word, I decided to write a story. Of course, that was long time ago, the story is long gone, but I never forget the sound of those words.
Being a spring baby, I love spring. Being a gardener, I love spring. Being a bird watcher, I love spring. I just love spring. It's a time of new growth, awakenings and the scent of soil waking up. And, while I am praying for not-so-much rain, I do love that smell.
On Thursday, March 12's Main Street Eats, we will talk a bit about seed starting. It's time. If you have the inclination to roll your own pots, here is a video that will show you how. It's a fun project for the children in your life, and a great recycling lesson also.
Here are another few tips to get those transplants off to a good start.
Happy planting. If you have any questions, please feel free to ask questions using the comments section below.

Writing, or maybe talking, comes naturally to me and under the guidance of a great newspaper editor I have acquired skills that led me to author four books.
