Two weeks ago, Matthew and I decided to try to start a little garden in our backyard (detailed post here). We planted basil, dill and cilantro in small planters, and sweet corn and grape tomatoes in the little dirt space we had available in our yard (we thought that the landlords wouldn’t be thrilled if we dug up the grass to make room for more seeds). Since we did everything from seeds, I thought that it would take quite a while before we saw anything green. What a surprise it was to come home from my mini vacation to find this:
Do you see that? Little sweet corn sprouts! In our yard!
Even our little cilantro is starting to sprout (those little tiny, tiny green things).
It’s so exciting to see life from the little seeds that we planted only 2 weeklits ago. I can’t wait to watch the plants develop, change and grow!
In other news, our grapes are starting to grow as well! We’re so lucky to have these along with our orange, lemon and (hopefully fruitful) avocado trees!
This coming week we’re going to build big boxes so that I can plant my yellow squash and zucchini (a little late).
Enjoy your weekend!
