grow little seed grow

One of the advantages of living in Alaska is that we can go out for an afternoon with our husbands and child, and hike to the top of a mountain...and get great views like this:

One of the disadvatages of living in Alaska is that we start our seedlings in May....May 4 to be exact:) Also, there are only certain things that can be grown without a greenhouse. So being that this is our first full summer in AK (Sarah only...Nathania has been here for years), my husband and I decided we would start a garden on our kitchen table! We've planted spinach, lettuce, chives, basil, sugar snap peas and some perrenials to go in the garden of our new house. So far the lettuce has exploded! It's only been 5 days and it's already pretty big. We're super excited to see if they all work out.

Sugar Snap peas

This is our experiment. I was reading on the web that you can plant the ends of your green onions (the part with the roots still attached) and they will grow more green onions! How frugal and cool is that?! It seems to be working so far...the onions have sent up new shoots, so we'll see what they do.

As for this random post...well I know it's not about sewing or crafts, but I was so excited about the little seedlings we have that I wanted to share it!
