While I have to do all the boring gardening stuff, like pickings weeds, my husband does the vegetable garden. Growing vegetables gets him even more excited than a Star Trek episode!
It's still kind of cold outside, but he couldn't wait to start sowing his seeds. So he created his own little hothouse, using some bricks and a piece of perspex. He built it against a wall where the sun always shines. And it worked! After only one week one of the seeds stuck its head out of the soil.
