One week ago we took these tiny dry seeds out of a packet, put them in some dirt, gave them water and a pep talk every morning and a week later lovely little living sprouts emerged. It's just amazing! I can't take the credit, it all goes to Mother Nature. Well not all of it. Much of it goes to the hard work of my husband...
We planted the two front beds and have sprouts in over 50% of the squares. Here is what we planted and what has sprouted so far...
New Zealand spinach
Italian lettuce blend
Rainbow Swiss chard
We're waiting on sprouts for...
Yellow Swiss chard
Solar yellow carrots
Parisian market carrots
We'll be doing the next wave of planting in the coming weeks, more tomatoes, more salad greens, 3 varieties of summer squash, bush beans, snow peas, and I will transplant the banana peppers that I have in the pot now that they are thriving.
What have you planted this season/what are your garden plans?
If you've never planted anything, try it. It's really rewarding and exciting to see things come to life. I will keep tracking the progress and can't wait until I can share the photos of the first harvest.
