365 Days of Earrings

Seeds for Planting

I wore these seed earrings to the community garden today. I had planned to turn the soil once more before planting anything, but the cover drop remained buried and my gardening friends insisted that I should begin planting.

I set some rows of tiny beet seedlings that Martha had started under a grow light, then planted a couple of rows of romaine lettuce and carrots from her array of extra seeds.

To protect the beets from exposure, our master-gardener Linda provided a hoop frame and some fabric she calls remay which we clothes-pinned to the hoop.
My daughter Kathe made me these earrings long ago. I love the tiny blue-green beads she chose; their color seems to give life to the colorless kernals.
