Starting seeds

It's exactly six weeks until our last frost date so I planted my tomato, pepper, eggplant, and herb seeds in their little Jiffy peat pots.
For the next four weeks I'll be making sure they are warm enough, watered, have plenty of light, and are protected from Danny and JP! Last year the boys turned over a whole tray of fragile seedlings while playing Ninja Turtles. It was my fault, really, I set the tray precariously in a sunny windowsill.

This year I am a woman on a mission - all heirloom tomatoes and peppers and all organic!
My seedlings will survive and hopefully in six more weeks they'll be ready to put into freshly tilled soil. I can almost taste that fresh salsa now!
