The Garden... Weeks 01 & 02

So I planted a garden last week. I typically don't have a green thumb, but I'm trying. Everything is starting from seeds except for the two strawberry plants. One week in and some green things are starting to poke through, so here's hoping!

Good for you! I still have about three feet of snow in my yard, so no garden for a while...

I don't envy you that snow at all! We had frost on Friday night, so I had to cover the strawberry plants, but I think we're good from here on out.

On the bright side, all that moisture should mean a *fantastic* local wild blueberry crop this year! *g*

Cool! good luck with it, gardening can be very relaxing and depending on what you planted it can be yummy too....

Thanks! Although getting on the soil in the thing killed my lower back and thighs for a few days last week. I had to use 12 40-quart bags to fill it all.

The things I'm waiting the most for are the sweet corn and the strawberries. :)

both corn and strawberries are good! and just think of the muscles you built up hauling the soil.

I have a horrible brown thumb and it's snowing here today (and has been for *days*) so I am so impressed and jealous of your shoots!

I've had one since a bad experience with a 4-H horticulture judge when I was around 8 years old. I did well with a miniature rose bush in college, so here's hoping.

And ick on the snow. We had frost Friday night, but I'm hoping that is over now.
