What’s more exciting than seeing the first seeds sprout for a new garden year? Yesterday, I noticed that the lupine (‘Russell Blend’) seeds I planted a few weeks ago are now sprouting. These required a cold treatment in the garage for a couple of weeks. They have been under the lights in my basement for about a week. Some seeds for pansies (‘Swiss Giant Blend’ and ‘Got the Blues’) have also sprouted. Woo-hoo!
