A sunny spring afternoon

The first signs of life are beginning to creep up in the garden. Two rows of lettuce that we planted from seed are popping up. I'm quite excited as I've never planted lettuce from seed before. I truly believe lettuce is the gateway drug to gardening.

Today also had some unseasonable warm spring temps and sunshine. I was able to duck out of work early and hit Alki Beach for a run. When people find out I live in West Seattle, sometimes they smirk and ask why I'd want to live over there? Gee...I wonder why?

I love West Seattle! Growing up, we had summer swim practices at the saltwater pool there (name escapes me now). I haven't been able to plant my lettuce yet because I'm still letting my compost fester (yummay!) but I will! Lettuce is indeed a gateway drug to gardening.
