Despite the rain, we have been planting seeds. Last fall, we gathered some seeds from our flower garden. A couple of weeks ago we scattered these seeds in one of our garden beds, along with a packet of Children's Flower Garden Mixture and Cosmos ("St. Michael's flower") seeds. Vegetable (broccoli, carrots, lettuce, tomatoes, and zucchini), blue lobeliawhite lobelia, dahlia ("Churchyard flower"), and dianthus ("Mary's love of God") seeds have all been started inside.

We transferred some of the vegetable seedlings outside and the zucchini and carrots are doing well. The broccoli and lettuce did not fair well, so we will wait until the weather warms up a bit to transfer more outside.

Update: The crows ate (or destroyed) all three of our zucchini plants. I will be buying some garden netting before planting anymore vegetable seedlings outside.
