We have sprouts!

I can’t even begin to describe the scene that occurred on my back porch yesterday afternoon, but I’m going to try my best. It was like any other day, I filled up my water pitcher and went outside to water my containers. As I opened the door and turned the corner toward my boxes, I saw some small green things poking out of the center box. I ran over to my Earthbox, and at those small signs of life, I jumped up and down and did a little happy dance. I ran back inside to grab one of my roommates off the couch and dragged her out to show her my emerging sprouts. For the rest of the night, any visitors to my house were shown this same courtesy, each of them having approximately the same reaction (oh, that’s nice). They did not break out into a little wiggly dance at the sight of my sprouts as I did, and I realized that it’s because they didn’t plant them. They had not buried seeds into the ground, hoping and yet doubting anything would ever come. They had not spent the last week watering and peering into the dark, damp soil, waiting for a sign of life. I had. And that’s why these sprouts made me do a happy dance.
