Vegetable Garden: Exciting Developments

{ 1 comment }

Hi guys! As I mentioned on Wednesday, I’m currently in Michigan (actually driving back right now) with my family. Don’t worry, I’ll be back soon.

Last week the garden went through quite a growth spurt. All of a sudden everything is growing like crazy. I swear I can literally see a difference in each plant from one day to the next.

So without further adieu. . . here’s what all the veggies look like as of last Sunday

The Red Lettuce is so big that you can’t even see the little marker anymore

In exciting news, this week was also our ‘frost date’ which means theoretically we won’t have another frost this until fall. Fingers crossed. It also means it’s time to start planting warm weather veggies like these:

I have high hopes for these two, arguably the two herbs I cook with the most.

The most exciting development this week, however, was the sprouting of one plant I had officially given up on . . .

That’s right ladies and germs, THE PARSLEY IS ALIVE!

After a month with no sign of life I had finally decided to buy a parsley plant at the Farmer’s Market last Thursday. Lo and behold when I went to water the garden the day before I found this little guy staring up at me. Obviously, this proves for the 236th time that I know absolutely nothing about gardening.

Here’s the whole kit and caboodle as of Sunday, April 17.

I also planted some flower seeds and bulbs around the front and back of the house that I picked up at the Dollar Tree. I have no idea if they’ll do well, but I figure they only cost $1 a piece and if they don’t grow I’ll have plenty of time to plant some transplants instead.

Can’t wait to show you what everything looks like after I get back from vacation!
