After the Rain Has Fallen
Early last week, while I was still snuggled in my bed, a light rain came down. Later that morning, when I went out to check on my garden--planted about ten days earlier--I discovered that everything had popped up. I had three rows of corn sprouts (on the left), and three rows of beans (on the right). Half a row of lettuce had emerged. (I'll plant more in a week or so.) The plants in the middle are tomatoes which I put in as small plants. The only thing that hadn't appeared were the carrots, but they're out now. It's not a very big garden (88 sq. ft.), but it is the first I've planted since we moved in about 9 months ago.
What a great surprise.
More important garden updates later.
