Planting some seeds, and St. Patrick's Day

We are ready for Spring around here, and can't wait to have a garden again!  Since we didn't have a yard in Korea we didn't grow anything at all last summer, and it was very strange!  This year we have a fabulous garden and hope we'll be successful in getting a few things to grow!

I got this kit at a store called Toom, which is like a Lowe's Home Improvement store.

 I also picked up a few packets of seeds- way more seeds than we'll need!  They are Tomato, Marigolds, Salad greens, Spinach, Tomato, Peppers, Rosemary, and Sugar Snap Peas.  I've grown most of these things successfully before, but that was in a different climate!

 Mdx is waiting for them to grow.  It will be a while.
For now they'll hang out on our windowsill, since most of the planting guides here say not to plant outside until April 1st!
 Here's how they looked a little more than a week after we planted them!  We've also planted some garlic, and a few bulbs-so we'll see what we get!  Onions are going in soon!

We interrupt this broadcast with a message from Maverick.  He would like you to know that he DID wear green for St. Paddy's Day, but decided to take his pants off.  It's his preferred way of dressing.
 Trying to keep up with at least one of my New Year's Resolutions...I got some St. Patrick's Day books.
I also got an Irish Angel.  Sorry it's so dark, my camera stinks.
 A table was a little too short for our table, so I put it under the TV.
 And, a new Scentsy warmer!
