The Garden is Sprouting
Can you see it? Can you see it? Look real close. This is so very exciting for us, and undoubtedly so boring for you.
It's been 14 days since we planted. We haven't been to the garden for 3-4 days because it's been raining, so today it was fun to see that those tiny little hard seeds actually do turn into plants...well, most of them are turning into plants.
You have to keep reading, though, to see the most exciting thing of all!
Squash (above picture)
Cucumbers (above picture)
Corn (above picture)
Spinach (above picture)
Green Beans (above picture)
Successful peppers (right) and failure tomatoes (left row)...I think they failed :(
Strawberries. LOOK CLOSER. Quit skimming. Yes, folks, that's a live one. Real, tangible, edible food.
We thought this was an orange...
but it turned out to be super duper sour...
look at those arms...see why we call her "Squishy"?...and can you see the tear dripping from her left eye?...
She loved it, though, and threw a fit when Libby wanted to try it. I let her have it in the car and she kept squishing her tiny first finger into the hole and sucking on it.
