After being inspired by my friend's pictures of her baby plants, I decided to go record the growth of my little plot.
It's had a bit of a rough start... I started a kazillion seeds indoors in early May, but unfortunately didn't read my seed books close enough. That part about hardening off seeds by setting them outside in the sun a few hours at a time until they can stand to be planted in full sun? That's important.
Most of what I planted from seed has kicked the bucket, but a few things are hanging on. You can see evidence of sun scorching on my tomato and pepper seedlings.
The spinach and lettuce I planted from seed straight into the ground, and it's doing quite well.
All the herbs were completely fried, though, so I went to the nursery and picked up some plants - basil, dill, parsley, and cilantro. When I went to plant the cilantro, though, look what I found still hanging on strong: if these little guys hang on through the summer, I will consider my garden a success!
