My rouge arugula seeds are growing along splendidly. I may even have to thin them out soon! mmmm february arugula! i think i am going to start a whole flat of greens on my sunny rad. Stay tuned . . .
Even though this is what i see when i look out the window . . .
i did discover a very encouraging sign of the season to come
all week, i have been putting a few extra seeds leftover from packaging seeds in the potted plants in my house. it's a sort of germination test & these arugula seeds are passing with flying colours. i put them in the pot with my chocolate pepper plant only three or four days ago & they are sprouting like mad! fresh greens inside in a few weeks!?! Plants love living on top of radiators.
I have been staying inside, hibernating & getting prepared for the upcoming seedy season!
Getting ready for Toronto's Seedy Sunday tomorrow! These are some of the buttons & seeds i will have for sale at the urbantomato booth. See you there!

Toronto Seedy Sunday 2010
These are all the seeds I traded in the seed exchange area last year!
the crowds of eager gardeners
Over the last few years I have been selling more & more of these packages. They are a great way to grow a fabulous mix of delicious veggies from one pack . . . You can always send me a photo in the summer if you wanna know what they name of the amazing vegetable you been adoring is . . . .
Toronto's Seedy Sunday is always a great event. Usually very busy, full of friends made over past years, excited gardeners planning their seasons, and lots of seeds!
I am busy working & packaging up storm. it is lightly snowing outside, but somewhere deep within i am starting to feel spring coming again!
