Seeing Old Friends

 Yesterday was one of my favorite days of the year. It is the day I plant tomato seeds. 

Opening that file is like seeing old friends. They have come from friends, acquaintances, breeders, and catalogs. I've carried them between states, saved some from years past, and renamed a few that got confusing. They come in all sizes (large, medium, and small) and colors (pink, purple, brown, green, yellow, orange, striped). 

They will grow indoors until Memorial Day weekend.  

The best day of the year.
