Herbs planted from seed are coming along, except for the rosemary.

Time to start plants from seed

Crocuses are in bloom, and I am getting the urge to do some gardening. It is too cold to plant something outside, but I have pulled out pots with plants that went dormant for the winter from the garage. I am hoping that being outside they will come back you life when it warms up.

I started some of my herbs a month ago because they were really tiny early in the season last summer. All seem to be doing well except the rosemary. I have two tiny plants that might be rosemary and growing slower than the other herbs.

I need to start the rest of plants for the garden. I think now is the perfect time to do that.
