What we’ve been training for our whole life…

So, as you might have noticed, I have been completely absent from my duties here at Our Tiny Earth. For this, I apologize, but things have not stopped, but rather, things are about to kick into high gear as the production season here starts.

First seedling of the year. A Green Zebra Tomato

Seeds, seeds, and more seeds. Everywhere we look, our house is covered with packets of different kinds of seeds. Tomatoes, pumpkins, swiss chard, beets, and just about everything else a small urban farm would need to get through the year. For me, this is our moment. The waiting game. We’ve spent the whole winter planning, studying, researching, and talking to those who know the business best. As they say, it’s game time.

Organic soil, seeds, egg cartons, milk jugs, and windows. What more can one need?

Well, this is it. I feel like a fighter stepping into the ring before a big bout, or a pitcher about to take to the mound to throw the first pitch of the season. This is what we’ve been working for all winter. This is what all the mistakes over the past couple of years comes down to. This is the beginning of it all. This is sustainability. No more practice laps, lets jump into the race.

  1. I love seeing the seeds sprout. After 6 years of farming, I still do a little happy dance when the first ones germinate. It still seems miraculous that so much life comes from such little seeds. :)
