Growing Things

Well, at my house right now we are not just growing little minds and big minds as far as that goes, I am never too old to learn something new.  We are also growing lots and lots of little plants.  I think that we have a few too many to be honest.  Don't tell anyone, but I think I got a little carried away with the seeds.  ;) 
My sunflowers are going to have to be moved to bigger
pots soon.  They have gotten very leggy in the last week.
These were among the first to sprout, and they are so very cheerful!

These are in my living room window.

At the same time I am very grateful for pinterest, because even though I have so very many seedlings all of my seeds have not yet sprouted.  As seen in the picture below.  All of the jars have water beads in them with seeds.  This way I am not left with a bunch of newspaper pots that I don't know whether they have viable plants in them or not.  It is always my biggest conundrum when it comes to planting my own seeds, most especially since some of the varieties are from seeds that I saved myself.
These won't fit in the living room, and since I don't trust the three year
old not to play with them, their home is in my bedroom window.

Altogether I think we have planted about 12 varieties of heirloom tomatoes as well as broccoli, cauliflower, eggplant, kohlrabi, peppers, celery, sunflowers, delphiniums, snapdragons, convulvus (bush morning glories), hollyhocks, larkspur, sage, summer savory, thyme, basil, chamomile, and the list goes on.  So yeah, things are a little crazy at my house right now.  I don't really know how many more newspaper pots I can fit.  I don't have any more windows!  As usual the Lord provides abundantly far more than we could ask or think.
