My birthday was a little over a week ago and my (totally awesome) boss got me an herb garden kit and a seed starting kit. Remember when I promised to start a small herb garden for the kitchen? I don't think she reads Living From Scratch, so it was a particularly thoughtful gift. I started the herb garden and nick started cabbage seeds in the other pot. This weekend, nick also started snow peas and sugar snap peas. It's still way too early to be starting most plants, but these guys are the frost-hardy ones that we can plant early.
