I love how my glasses fog up when I walk into the greenhouse. The humid air kisses cheeks that are cold from the crisp outdoors. I take long delicious breaths of the earthy greenhouse air that hums with the murmur of green, growing things. And since this is an herb specialty greenhouse, I walk the aisles to gleefully visit romantic lavenders, fresh mints, pungent scented geraniums, spicy basils, aromatic sages, and indulgent rosemary. Everything exudes the most satisfying elixir for the spring fever soul. I have come to Richters greenhouse to buy seeds. Today's seed purchases are my favourite cold weather veggies, to be planted as soon as the soil is workable: lettuces, beets, radishes and peas (pod, snow and snap for my garden). I heartily support buying seeds locally if you can – I am lucky to have renowned Richters just down the road. And if seed shopping gets you into a greenhouse to soak in some glorious green, all the better!
