Selfishly, I was a bit miffed. I had been all excited to start my cold weather plantings; it's what I do every April and my plans were stymied. So I turned to seeds. I couldn't remember the last time I started my plants indoors in part because I never had great success. Not much fun in that.
However, this year my little window garden is a joy. Of course I'm not thankful for the crisis, but I am thankful for being forced to do things a little differently. After this experience I may very well start every spring season by the kitchen window, start every day with a visit to the little black cells just to find out which plant has grown a second set of leaves. There's a great deal of hope in a seed.
