Garden Update: Sprouts!

It’s been one week since I planted my seeds that needed to be planted indoors and I’m seeing a handful of sprouts! It’s so exciting – makes me feel like spring is really coming. The winters in NC are not all that awful (especially since I grew up in MI), but I think no matter how long or cold your winter is, spring is always welcome. My first sprout was one of my Brussels sprouts, which popped up on Thursday!

Unfortunately for me, Brussels sprouts are my least favorite of what I’m growing. I’m not a big fan but Chris loves them so he insisted we grow a few. I think I’m going to have to try this recipe for roasted parmesan garlic Brussels sprouts once I harvest them.

Now, a week later, my tomatoes are beginning to sprout in the pot. I can’t wait to see how this thing turns out!

Besides the tomatoes, the only other sprouts I have are Brussels sprouts. Of course. I have four of them. I’m just glad something is growing and I haven’t killed them yet but I can’t wait for everything else to grow!

The other plants should get to sprouting this week and I will be checking on them like crazy! Next week, I will be starting the plants outdoors that can survive a frost (onions, lettuce, arugula).

How is your garden coming? Are you ready for spring?
