There is nothing more exhilirating than watching a seed turn to something green for your garden. We are still having hard frosts as well (zone 5a) so I have only set out the lettuces and poppies. I am going to plant the vegetable garden this year by the moon calendar, or at least make an effort to do so. Have you read up on this? Fascinating stuff!

Avril - We're zone 5a too. I'm seeing fingernail sized growth from the lettuces I planted a month ago, and the peas are ramping up (a couple of inches at this point). I'm intrigued by the concept of planting by the moon, but am so much of a procrastinator in the garden that I know I would always miss the golden window that the calendar recommends. Let me know how your moon calendar planting goes!
