Readers, Welcome to my blog (formerly Birds, Blooms, Books, etc). I'm entering a new decade taking on the challenge of moving from Maryland after living there 46 years and learning about my new home here in New England in the Live Free or Die state - New Hampshire. Join me as a write this new chapter of my life.

There's something magical each spring when those first seeds germinate and the new life shows itself as a tender shoot reaching up for light.

I planted 6 varieties of tomatoes and so far 4 have germinated: Rutgers, Amish paste, Goldie and Market Miracle (from Daphne).  Two pots of basil have also germinated.  My two varieties of peppers and the remaining two varieties of tomatoes are still residing in the warmth of the mechanical room awaiting their magic time.

So this isn't a harvest but it's a foreshadowing of harvests yet to come.  Check out other harvests at Daphne's Dandelions.
