« Part 1: The Beginning... Part 2 of Vegetable Garden - 2014 series Part 3: The First Month... »

So the first week (and a little) has passed…
You may laugh to hear of it, but much of it was spent making excuses to go out and take a peek at seed progress (or lack thereof)...
The radishes poked through quickly of course and are doing well… indeed, they need thinning!


There followed several anxious days, wondering when we would see some more sprouting…
Debbie aptly described it as feeling like an expectant Parent, as we paced the Garden, looking for signs of life…

At first, all that was visible was a crack appearing where the row of beans were sown…

And finally after a week and a day (and to our considerable Pleasure!), new Life emerges!

Not to be out done, the Pumpkin and Sunflower seeds sprouted at the same time… The Sunflower…

And the Pumpkin…

We purchased Plants of the other Vegetable types and they have been doing wonderfully! Incredibly, the one Cherry Tomato plant we have is flowering and actually bearing Pea-sized Fruit!

Anyway, the first week has been an enjoyable one, bringing with it a real gladness of Heart! It has been a real kick to watch the seeds spring forth and to have some Faith restored in the inevitability of Life… Given the Proper conditions, and a modicum of Water and Sunshine, Life will not be denied! :)

I am glad you are enjoying your garden. In addition to producing healthy, delicious food, our gardens entertain and inspire us. I am a little behind in my planting schedule this year, but my goal is to get my squash and more bean seeds in the ground this week.

Thanks my Friend!
The plan here is to plant another row of beans, about a month after these… In my last Garden (many years ago!), I staggered three plantings a week apart, and because of the Weather conditions they all caught one another up… With the result that I had three rows all producing at once!
Hopefully, a month apart will give us a longer fruition period when they reach that point…
