Sprouting spring

Outside the March winds are howling. Inside, in a bread pan that was headed for the Sally Ann, in reused soil saved from last month's tulip bulbs, I am growing poppies in a plastic lettuce container greenhouse. I put the ground pepper sized seeds in the pots on Monday night and presto. The trouble with poppies is that they hate to be transplanted, so I will have to thin them, then take the soil and carefully lower it into a new and larger pot. The results in Steven's lush photos taken in our little garden are worth it. Next I think I'll start on Morning Glories. Ya Mama. Mike Dooley says,"Think Big!" I say "Think Big Pleasure!

Have a growing day!
