good gardening news

last weekend, I wrote about my problems with my vegetable garden; at the time, it looked very grim. but a couple of days ago I was out fussing over tulips (not that they need much fussing) and went to look at the veggie bed….

lo and behold, some of the seeds that I planted with the starts had actually sprouted. if the chart that I drew up when I planted everything is correct, then I have lettuce, radishes, spinach, arugula, and peas coming up. yay!

plus the 2nd batch of starts is doing quite well; I imagine they’ll go out in the garden in another week or two.

(on the other hand, this weekend we’re supposed to be getting more unseasonably warm weather…it feels more like June than April, and I’m a little worried at the lack of rain.)
