I've also gotten into gardening in the last year or so. This year we started some snow peas and roma tomatoes from seeds, and they're growing! I don't know if I've grown a seed since I put that lima bean in the plastic baggie with the wet paper towel in 3rd grade! But they're growing! I can't wait for some sugar snap peas, and some yummy tomatos!
(We also planted some marigolds, but so far they just look like dirt. I'll post another picture when and if they come up!)
