Most things in my garden are looking really well. Still waiting for the beans, squashes, cucumbers, sunflowers, and basil to come up. Everything else is sprouting and growing beautifully. I love my garden.
The little welcome sign my mom gave me this year (last year’s was broken), and Mercy’s little birdbath.
The garden gate, and the view of the garden from the garden gate.
Pretty, tidy little rows of onions and spinach!
Another side view of the garden, and a closeup at my little lettuce heads beginning to form! This is my favorite.
Valiant little rows of peas, almost ready to climb a fence; and a little cluster of carrots (that will need thinned soon).
Nicely spaced beets (however, they still need thinning – so I’ll pop the tiny greens in a salad); and my potato ditch! I’m growing Yukon Gold potatoes, which is very exciting for me.
I have found the garden to be some good therapy for me. Nobody stares at me while I weep out there. And I’m not hurting anything but weeds as I use all my body strength to whack at the dirt with my hoe.
