I think that anyone who plants a garden must be an optimist at heart. To plant little seeds and expect them to grow into fruits and vegetables – it seems impossible – and yet, we plant them and watch what happens. Here are recent photos of some of the seeds we’ve planted and nurtured that we are looking forward to eating in a month or two:
Optimism will only go so far, though…and that is when a dose of realism is necessary. For example,
…these sweet potatoes were planted after onion seeds failed to emerge. The sweet potatoes are looking great (hey – sure hope they don’t taste like onions!).
We spend a lot of time just walking around our garden area, staring intently at the individual plants as if that might help them to grow faster. We’ll let you know if it does.
In addition to the garden, Mr. Fifty Shades is making headway on the deck project which started out as a small deck outside our back door and will eventually be almost the width of the house.
Until next time….
Fifty Shades of Green Acres!
