We Got Crops

Well , not really crops, but the promise of food on the table in the near future as evidenced by the emergence of tiny little seedlings. I'm always amazed when the tiny seeds get together with the water and the soil food web to produce a new life that will use the energy of the sun and the elements of the air and the soil to grow into nourishment for our bodies.
Each species has its own timetable. In 3 days the turnips show up, in 2 more the basil. The cilantro takes longer, a week or more and the chives are still working it but i have every confidence they will make their presences known soon.
If i do my job properly we'll soon be dining on these miracles of life.
I can hardly wait.
