It happens every year. I'm at the garden center at any local store and there's big beautiful tomato plants, herb plants, and every flower you can think of. I wonder what I'd have to do to achieve this early success and sigh. I live practically at the base of a mountain on the edge of a forest. Not the most ideal location to grow most of the vegetables that are available at grocery stores.
I have to be patient and remember that the plants I grow will be stronger later from starting at a more appropriate time and that many plants in the garden center end up with frost damage from late Spring temperatures dipping below 32 degrees Fahrenheit. I will also save the seeds as the plants have learned a lot from growing in the area and will pass on this knowledge.
It's all about not rushing what shouldn't be rushed. A lesson I must continually learn.
To every thing there is a season...
