i can't tell you how excited i get to see things grow. here are my little beet seedlings sprouting away outside. i think i'm the only person in my family that's excited about growing beets. i know. i'm weird.
these are my mystery plants. well, okay, the one on top is some kind of pumpkin, i know because i threw one of the moldy jack-o-lanterns into the compost pile last fall and as soon as it started warming up a little i had fifty thousand pumpkin seedlings growing everywhere. we decided to just transplant them to the side of the yard to see what would happen. either they'll die, or we'll wake up one morning with our backyard turned into a labyrinthine pumpkin patch. anyway, i don't know if these are white, orange, or what. the plant on the bottom is...chamomile. i think. it sprouted forever ago and i've been babying it to find out what it would become.
here is one of my million tomato plants. i've got sweet 100, big boy, better boy, and beefsteak. the funny thing is, i don't even like tomatoes. i guess i'll be doing a lot of canning.
zucchini!! yay! off to the right are acorn squash, but they look exactly the same so i didn't take a picture.
i've also got some carrots starting to sprout, and in a few weeks i'll be getting my sweet potato plants. a friend of mine is bringing me some blueberry bushes this week. :)
now if only i can keep from killing all these pretty green things.
