Who Can Wait For Spring?

Although it is too early here in zone 6 to start seeds for this coming season, I decided to let the kids have a little fun. We planted a few dwarf Little Marvel peas (soaking in the cup), carrots, Simpson Elite lettuce, and radishes in a large container. My son had a lot of fun counting, planting, and watering the seeds. The container is now placed in my sunny, southern-facing indoor window. Although it gets cool near the windows, I figured the kids might have a little luck with these cool season crops. If not, it was still a fun activity on a cold winter afternoon.
