How Does Our Garden Grow?

Quite well!

Though the zucchini has been taking its sweet time. Everything else started sprouting about a week ago — the carrots, the various lettuces, the pumpkins. But the first zucchini seedling did not make its debut until late last week. I spotted the second one yesterday, and today there are two more.

However, because of the delinquency, I went ahead yesterday afternoon and planted several more seeds in a pot.

In my opinion, one can never have too much lettuce. In large part because we have such limited space for a vegetable garden, I blithely ignore the recommendations of the seed packets for how far apart to space the seeds. I figure, I’ll be picking it fairly often for dinner, so it doesn’t matter that they are closely spaced.
