All right, here's the garden update: everything that I planted two weeks ago sprouted except about half of the carrots. Also, last Monday, we wound up at The Farm and I just HAD to buy tomato plants. I got Cherry Tomatoes (two to the pot) and "The Farm's Tomato" (whatever that means). They turned out to be $1 each or so which was fantastic. I feel like we bought something else besides the weekly flower and a bunch of veggies that were good. Strawberry season was such a disappointment and way too fast again. I could have bought a strawberry plant, but didn't see the point
Here's a photo from last week:
Here are a few shots from today:

|Zucchini flower the first successful one! I think...I hope! It was lovely this morning.|

|There's about 4 carrot sprouts, I think.|
Our (I'm getting The Philosopher Musician involved) next project is to successfully pull off making compost, but that's for another post.
- Plants need watered
- Tomato babies need protection until they get some larger leaves.
