Just as a seed germinates and then grows into a mature plant, this blog will grow and mature over time. These small lettuce seedlings, some of which still have their seed coats attached, are only a day or two past sticking their heads up through the ground. This blog is just beginning, and like the seedlings, is seeking sunlight and nourishment.
Over time, I expect to write about gardening, native plants, and photography. I’ll share thoughts about the plants we grow, plants I find interesting in the wild, and photographic interests. It’s hard to tell at this point just where this missive will lead. Check in every now and then to see what’s new.
The seedlings were photographed on my back windowsill with a 100mm macro lens, a 2x teleconverter, and a short extension tube between them to make it all fit together. In actuality, they’re only about an inch tall. The light came from the window, and the background is black because they’re growing in a black plastic 6-pack tray. When they get big enough, I’ll transplant them into our garden and eventually they’ll be dinner.
