The Garden Project- week 2





My garden is coming along superbly!!!! I am sooooo excited! I am gonna start by posting pics of the garden the day I planted the seeds a week ago....






These are the seeds... yes there is a ton.. I know.  BUT I managed to plant all but the watermelon, cabbage and an extra packet of tomatoes...

I went and gots to planting...



I think I already posted some of these, but oh well... my memory sucks and I don't feel like verifying.  Consider it a rerun to put you up to speed...







I vaguely remember posting this one...

but this is what it looked like once the seeds were planted... pretty unassuming



These are the strawberries two days after planting...

but just four days ago they had grown to this...



And, I know that today they will be larger still!  I can't wait until they start to bloom...



The blueberries already have a bunch of berries... I'm working on getting them in better shape than what I found them in.



Here is a broccoli seedling... circa last monday...



Can you see the rows starting to sprout?  The vertical ones on the far end are zucchini, summer squash and acorn squash... the horizontal row in the middle are cucumbers... and the near end has beets and carrots but those you can't really see in this picture.


here is a better pic of the cukes...



and a close-up of the zukes...


Monday these were ALL much larger, but I didn't have my camera with me when I was watering the garden so no pics, but since I will need to water them again this afternoon I will post more pics tonight.

My sister claims I am a bit obsessive with the garden, but I feel like a little kid every time I run to the garden and see that the plants have grown just a bit more than the day before!  That, and I can just imagine harvesting all that yumminess and I get all excited!

So check in later to see today's progress on the garden.

:oP

So exciting! I wish I had the patience / the green thumb to do this!
