How Does My Garden Grow?

Once I had planted all my seeds I carefully put my enclosures on. I wasn't going to use them at first, but I figured they would offer protection and maybe my little garden would sprout more quickly. How quickly was a mystery to me. I really had no idea how long it took for plants to sprout. Imagine how thrilled I was when went down to feed Ellen three days later and saw this:

Okay, that's just Ellen waiting for me. I see that every morning, but she sure is cute, isn't she? I am so lucky to see her every morning.

This is what I also saw:

Yep, little tiny sprouts! These are my radishes! I was so excited I texted Joey right away with the news. He was pretty excited, too.  Both my radish and my daikon, which is a Japanese radish, have begun to grow in the neat little rows I place them in.  A few days later they looked like this:

Look at that! I have a vegetable garden. It's so exciting. Every day I go down more of my little vegetables have spouted! Almost my entire garden has sprouted except my eggplant, which apparently takes a bit longer. I can't wait to go down tomorrow and see what's next! Before I know it we will be eating our own produce! Won't that be something?!!!
