“Deep in the mysteries of seed”

Saturday, Mar 31, 1945

“We are deep in the mysteries of seed,” Mommy wrote home. After laying out neat rows in the new garden beds, Daddy went to the local hardware store this morning and came home “with enough seeds to plant a five-acre farm. He constructed an indoor box to start off the tomatoes. He also started corn, radishes, lettuce, carrots, peas, beans, and watermelons. There are more but I can’t remember offhand, and I hate to disturb him to ask because he is watching the tomato seeds which he planted five minutes ago. He will be very disappointed if they don’t sprout at least one little leaf before he goes to bed tonight. Imagine – our own watermelon in our own backyard!”
