Garden Update

We planted the garden seeds two weeks ago on Wednesday. They are coming up. They look a bit puny now, but just wait!
We've also had between 3 -4 inches of rain in the last two weeks. You'll notice many rocks in these pictures. The rain always brings more up out of the ground.
Here's the first corn. I LOVE to see the first wee little shoots poppin' up. They will make drastic changes in the next two months! This little sprout is about 1.5 inches tall.

These are the two northern outside rows. Radishes are on the outside row. The row next to them is: 8 green pepper plants, 4 cabbage plants, & 4 sweet banana pepper plants. You can't see them very well in this picture.

Here is a cabbage plant. I included it so you could see the German Shepherd foot prints. LOL They were chasing each other & slid thru this row!

Bean sprouts! I think they look so funny when they're poppin' up. They come up bending their heads way over & then the next day they stand straight up! You can see the third sprout is bending its head & the other two are standing up. And of course there's the rocks...
Here are the two bean rows. You can't really see much, I included it because there will be a HUGE difference in these in the next two months also!

And here's a tomato plant. They're still small too. But not for long.

Here's a broccoli plant.

And here's a poor sweet banana pepper. We have 4 of them, & some onery critter has been getting in the garden & munching on them! 3 of the 4 look just like this. :( I'm hoping they still come around.

And doesn't this basil plant
look lonely?! I hope hope HOPE the seeds come up! But look at those doggie foot prints again! I may just have to buy a few more basil plants...
Well, that's it for this week.
I'm sure the pictures will look much different even next week!
