My mom and I finally devised a Scout-proof fence around it, so I haven't had to replant it every other day for the last couple weeks, and it's gotten a chance to sprout. Here are a few photos of the progress.
I don't profess to be a great photographer, and I struggle with Blogger and photos -- not sure why some of these are on their sides, because I thought I had rotated them. Oh well.
Lettuce. The earlier planted row seems to have stopped growing.
Maybe I'll harvest them and call them "microgreens."
Squash and basil from seed.
I've never had luck with herbs from seed, so we'll see.
I bought a plant as well, because I can't do without basil.
Tomato I bought already mature.
Barbara Kingsolver wouldn't approve, but then again,
she doesn't have two children under five. Babysteps on this gardening adventure.
Smaller tomato, and the giant tomato cage that was the only size left at the store.
This was supposed to show you my marigolds and petunias,
but looks just like wet mulch and some greenery.
Flower bed and yard. White impatiens in this one.
Also, the stepping stone the kids made me for Mother's Day (in front of our gnome friend).
J. wants you to admire the grass, and to be annoyed
that I deadheaded my petunia onto its beauty.
