In Bloom

The first sprouts are coming up

It's working!

Carrots, lettuce, and beets are sprouting

5/11: Only a few days have passed since planting, but things are starting to sprout! I’m pretty excited. So far, I can see that beets, carrots, and lettuce have broken through. Some of the lettuce looks like it was planted too close to the carrots, and some carrots look like they were planted too close to one another…I blame the fact that the seeds are tiny and it was a little breezy when I planted. If need be, I’ll thin the plants, but we’ll see.

Next steps: Add compost, and keep watering.
