greens bed before and after

It’s been warm here and this bed of greens is not taking the heat well…the lettuces are all wilty

Cabbage

I bought three little cabbage plants and not 48 hours after putting them in the ground, leaves have already been munched on.

cucumbers

Yes I planted too many seeds, again here.  In my defense, some of the seeds were old and I wasn’t sure if all were gonna germinate.

squash and melons

Seeing nothing in the dirt one day and the next day a sprout never gets old for me.  This is the squash.

This is the muskmelon.  Looking forward to the possibility of fruit!

peppers

I clearly was heavy handed when I dropped these seeds.  They are jalapeno and I am happy they are sprouting.  I will thin them out this weekend.

This is bell pepper.  The more peppers the better.

tomato plants

We bought some tomato plants at the farmers market a few weeks ago, Madigan picked this one cause it had flowers on it, and we got little tomatoes starting.
