. . .
Our first veggie patch has been planted. I’d like to say that I have lots of inspirational photos of the event to post, but it was so freakin’ cold that I couldn’t hold the camera still enough to get proper photos. Just look at that blurry photo above – that was the best one of the day. Do you see the blur of a shivering hand? My fingers were purple. My nose was runny. I could barely manage to hold the teeny-weeny little carrot seeds for sowing. Yah, that’s right. I sowed stuff. It. Was. Awesome. I felt like a real farmer.
2.0 tilled the garden on Saturday, and added loads of organic, mushroom and seaweed compost to the soil. And on Sunday, the Beaucoups joined us for a veggie planting bonanza. We planted mesclun and bibb lettuce, onions, beets, carrots, radishes, peas and chives. All cool-weather veggies. We’ll be adding zucchini and tomatoes when the weather warms up. I’m thinking that you people have really boring lives (thus your frequent visits to my blog), so you’ll probably interested in frequent updates and photos of sprouts and crap.
I checked the garden this morning, and nothing has grown yet, but I’m not discouraged. I’ll check again after work.
