Seeing green

Brigid Brigid, happy and fulgid, how does your garden grow? Quite well, it seems!

As you can see, I haven't killed anything yet! In fact, everything is getting bigger and brighter. A few days ago, I tied my cherry tomato plant to its trellis with some  leftover pillowcase fabric from the skirt I made. Check out all the snapdragons! I also seem to be revitalizing the parsley (on the right). And -- wait, what are those tiny sprouts I see?

Little radish plants! Five poked through, but I had to thin one out. Look how perfect they are.

They're reaching for the sky. I can just hear the "ehn! ehn!" sounds.

Over on the far left, I today spied another new friend.

A teeny lettuce friend to be. Oh little sprout, how delicious you shall become.

If you let your eye migrate upward, you'll see the pièce de résistance:

It's a baby tomato! I am so proud of this little guy. In fact, after I first discovered him, I had a nightmare that he was taken from me. I know how sad it is to become so attached to a plant, but I'll admit that I have. I can't wait to eat him. :)

And all the while I was snapping photos of my little urban jungle, I had the feeling I was being watched.

Glad to see you site (and your garden) growing! Thinning out is the hardest thing to do, akin to triage in a disaster situation (but without the emotional commitment).

I think little baby plants are just adorable. Especially the tiny radishes! Your pup is cracking me up, my cats do the same thing when I'm out on my balcony. There's a chair they climb onto, but all you can see is their head peaking through, which gives the appearance of a 4-foot-tall cat peeking at me.

This makes me want to plant something!! I really want to grow peonies, but I have no idea if they can be grown in a pot...I am home most weeknights; I get off around 5 usually. Just give me a ring on my cell or text me...918-813-6914. If the boots fit and you like them, I will give you a deal!
Cheers,
Tara
