Seeds are sprouting

Tomatoes, peppers, cabbage, beans, cauliflower, brussel sprouts, eggplant etc ...all organic, heirloom seeds; once the weather gets better, we'll transfer them to the backyard. Of course we'll use good dirt and compost (ground in Greenpoint is polluted, there was an oil spill here a while ago ...).

Planting and watching the seeds sprout is amazing, very relaxing; the whole process is also pretty easy, no brainer, and considering the quality of vegetables we'll get, priceless.

I'm not delusional, we'll be lucky if we can grow 10% of our food this year ourselves - but you have to start somewhere, at least it's the first step towards self-sufficiency.
