My seedlings are getting big. Some of the tomatoes are getting too big, actually, and I'm still hardening them off. Hopefully, they won't become too leggy or root-bound before I transplant them. The biggest plants in this picture are tomatoes. The others are leeks, pepper plants, and various herbs.
More tomato and pepper plants. I also have some basil and eggplant outside, hardening off at this very moment. See the arrow? That's sage! I finally got one sage seed to sprout out of the scores, maybe even hundreds, that I sowed. But all it takes is one. :)
All this seed starting makes me hungry, and kale chips hit the spot. I'm not a huge kale fan, but kale chips are a whole different beast. Break up the leaves into 2" pieces; toss them with some olive oil, salt, pepper, and cayenne; and bake for up to 20 minutes in a 375 degree oven (watch carefully that they don't burn, since ovens vary).
