Morning in the Garden

I love the mornings before I go to work. I get up early enough to have coffee and breakfast and spend time with our flock. It's a very peaceful time for me and ones of the few times I am alone. Well, except for the birds. Now I have added one new treat to my mornings - checking out my vegetable garden.

Every morning when I unzip the enclosure I am treated to new little sprouts and the one from before have gotten bigger. It's only been ten days, but almost my entire garden has sprouted.

My radishes, onions, carrots, zucchini, cucumber,lettuce, spinach, even my cauliflower, are growing up a storm. My eggplant hasn't done anything yet nor have my peppers. I read that peppers take about six weeks to germinate so I will be patient with them.

The beans are all growing, well, like a beanstalk. Before long I am going to be able to chase a giant for a golden egg. The one thing I was worried about was my Italian parsley. It was just this vacant square. I was beginning to think that maybe I had forgotten to plant seeds there but this morning there was a little, tiny sprout saying, "We're here!"

I am really digging this vegetable garden thing. I know it's early in the game but I think I might have a knack for this.

Wow, Sean, thing look like they are coming along beautifully! I just love those planters and you will have veggies in no time! I just planted some strawberries in a container and today I shall plant some green beans, hot peppers and cucumbers. My Meyer lemon is sprouting a ton of new leaves so I am keeping my fingers crossed. Please keep updating!!
