hummus rocks


As if hummus didn't rock enough, I was thrilled to have the momentary dash of genius to realize that the mini hummus packets from costco are perfect to start my seeds in. (a la square foot gardening)  This is definitely more compact that my previous starts in large yogurt containers, although now that I am thinking about it, I guess I could use small yogurt containers. (but the hummus comes in these great shallow containers...and who doesn't love a little bit of hummus here and there?)  Below are my seeds that I finally got around to transplanting tonight.  I am still waiting for my cucumbers, zucchini, basil, tomatoes and bell peppers to sprout.  I sprouted my seeds in vermiculite, putting tiny holes in the bottom of the containers.  I then put the containers on a shallow dish that had a little bit of water.  Voila!  
Bonus: Here is my belated picture of Autumn's purse.  Notice the dirt on it?  It kind of warms my heart because she toted this baby all over Grandma's forest this weekend, meaning that she gives it 2 thumbs up.  This is why kids are so dang fun to sew for.  No purse that I would have purchased would have been quite so loved.
