Granny Squares and spring seeds sown

Linking up with:

A look at what's been going on here the last couple of weeks, a little crochet and seed sowing.  This newest crochet blanke tis going to be designed with smaller squares done in two color combos, I think it resembles the amish quilt style a little bit.
I'm hoping for the next post to be able to add a video tutorial for crocheting a granny square and switching yarn colors.

I'm using wool, washable, but does not go in the dryer. 

In the works, gowing food, for a somewhat healthier life.  I've started some organic heirloom seeds, indoor sowing.  Getting the titming down is a little tricky.  First you sow them and each type of plant can vary on when to sow and what zone you live in, then there is transplanting them and holding them until they can go outside.  This year has been more difficult with that than last year for  me for various reasons.  But here's where I'm at:

There are tomatoes, peppers, basil, brocoli, and cauliflower, cateloupe and watermelon, and a couple of flowers seeds black knight scabosia and stock.

I'm afraid my melons are getting a little leggy, and some of my vegetables, don't look like they've made it with some cooler temps in my unheated sunroom, even though I've added a space heater a little too late, probably.

If you look closely at the tall seedling you can see how the watermelon seed hasn't fallen off yet, kind of neat how these gown and emerge.

Well, with any luck maybe after all the hard work I will get some of these beauties, but this is just the first stage with more hurdles all spring and summer long to get a final product, with all the work it's no wonder a watermelon will cost $7. 
Here's the seed sowing stage, the other photos above were transplanted seedlings.  Below is a close up shots of seedlings.  These are the scabosia and stock.

Off to buy more soil to transplant, have a great weekend.  Blessings to you, Michelle
