Finally starting some seeds!

Well, it's been a long winter, and I am SO ready to start gardening.  I'm a little worried because the wet weather through the fall and winter has kept me from digging my new garden beds, so I really have nowhere to put all of these seeds I'm starting.  I'm hoping for some dry, warm weather soon so I can get the beds ready.

So far, I've bought some seed potatoes, which I plan on planting in either trashbags or trash cans, depending on the budget, and have also bought tons of seeds.  You know I can't pass up a good seed aisle.  It is amazing to me how much food you can buy for $20 if you are willing to grow it yourself!

I've started some broccoli, four kinds of tomatoes, and some scallions in peat pellets.  All of the tomatoes have sprouted even though it seems like it's freezing in the house.  I haven't had any luck with the scallions germinating yet, but it's only been about 6 days.  I've seen several places with onion sets for sale, so I may just try those this year. 

I can't wait to get things planted!  This is going to be my first full season of gardening, and I know I have a lot to learn.
