Garden Update #2. The good news: Plants are sprouting!!! The bad news: the dog buried a sock in the green onions. Boooo! I’m so impressed with the power in a seed! Life… all dried up and shriveled… bursting forth into green goodness. Does my heart SO good. I go out several times a day and stare at the garden barrels. Here are some photos to make you purely envious of my amazing gardening ability. (We’ll see if we’re all envious after the Phoenix sun does its duty in June and July!)
That is the spinach popping up their little heads toward the sunlight.
Little peas all straight in rows. (Thankfully I could see those seeds. The carrots aren’t in straight rows at all.) Next is a cute and dainty green bean doing its thang.
Those pictures were from Saturday. Here are the pictures from TODAY… only two days later!
Peas on the left and beans on the right. The no-man’s-land in the center is going to be peas too, but they were planted 4 or 5 days later than the rest.
Bringing up the rear of the photo montage is the two zucchini plants…. soon to be the SOLE zucchini plant. If you have ever planted and harvested this yummy squash, you know the SECRET to raising zucchini….. you only need ONE plant per family!!! We learned the hard way, 18 years ago, when there were only two of us and we planted eight zucchini plants. I believe we lost some friends that summer after we filled their car with the prolific vegetable! Good times!
