How My Garden Grows

Well it's not with Silverbells and Cockle Shells and Seven pretty Maids in a row. It's definitely thanks to the rain we've been receiving lately, which I must constantly say "Thank You God" for, because the drought was not kind to the garden last year (with the watering bans and all). Well I've been collecting water in a container, so I don't feel so bad watering, because I haven't used the hose all season.



I've got a lovely salad mix, some arugala, mesculun, spinach, scallions, oregano, mint, and cilantro out already. I've been hesitant about putting out my potatoes and peppers, but I'm coming around, if only the weather would. I put the seeds out on Good Friday, so that would have been March 21, right? At any rate, here is what they looked like on April 18th.

Lettuce Mix, Spinach, Scallions


And in case you were wondering, that is a kiddie pool that the lettuce is growing in.
