Ready for the World

Ready for the World

When I went to check on my growing seedlings this morning, I noticed that their plant light was burnt out.  My poor babies!  In the dark all day and and NOT PHOTOSYNTHESIZING!!!!  The horror.  How am I supposed to get lots of fresh vegetables without photosynthesis?  So after I got home from work, and before we walked to the hardware store to buy new plant lights, I brought the babies out to be nourished by the natural sun…outside…out of the garage.  They grow up so fast (sniff, sniff).

So here are some photos of their first big day in the big bad world.  I put them on tables so at least the big, bad bunnies couldn’t get to them.  And we have a lot of bunnies around here!

Aren’t they beauties??  I’m so proud of how well they’ve grown!  Yes, yes, its completely true.  I’m misplacing un-fulfilled maternal instincts on cucumber plants.  Hell, you should see how many thousands of cat pictures I take.  I have lots of love to give, and if it must be put in the direction of okra and tomatoes? So be it, they will be very well cared for little plants!
