The other morning I walked tentatively to the garden bed to find an excellent surprise: the garden is growing! I’m not sure why I’m so surprised by this “phenomenon.” Don’t gardens grow? Isn’t that what they do? Wasn’t that the purpose of sowing seeds and watering incessantly?
All true, but I am still heaving a sigh filled with relief and anticipation. So far, here’s what my labor produced:
The arugula is coming along nicely, but I do believe the little sprouts are too close together. This could be because the ever-helpful husband kind of just dumped the entire seed packet into the row. So we will either have lots and lots of arugula (which is fine by me. It’s my favorite.) or the little guys will choke each other out in a battle for survival. I’ll probably thin out the bed before that happens, though. (Look at me talking intelligently about gardening!)
I see a slight bit of growth on the spinach side of the bed, and the beets are just peeking out. We are expected to have weather in the mid-80s tomorrow, so I’m hoping my darling veggies will respond.
Enjoy your weekend! I’m off to water MY garden.
