It’s growing

Everything starts as a baby.  That’s a little green pepper!

And this is what happens when you give your husband the packet of peas (right).  He goes a little crazy and now we’re going to have peas for days!  Better research some recipes now!

Now these I should have shot with my macro lens but I was already outside, lazy and it was hot so forgive me.  Next time.

These are from the seed tape.  They took a little longer to peek up but they are there!  We are hoping for carrot, green onions and lettuce!  Dang those lettuce leaves are tiny.  Good thing I’m not starving over here.

Sometimes I buy things without really reading the label.  Including plants.  After I bought three tomato plants I realized they were cherry tomatoes.  Oops.

So now we have three types.  Cherry, normal and Roma tomatoes.  I don’t know what the “normal” ones are called.

And because the veggies are far from my herb garden, I need a whole new set of garden hand tools closer by!  Found these treasures at For the Love of Old which is sadly closing their storefront but thankfully will still be selling items.  I’m going to put some “S” hooks on it and it can hang my tools from there.

The bird’s nest is still there.  I wonder what she does during the day.  She must work.

Happy spring!

Diana Elizabeth read that in order to continually have green onions, they need to be replanted every two weeks.  She isn’t quite sure there’s room in her mini crop rotation for them.  We’ll see.
