It survived, along with a bunch of weeds that grew up in between the rows making everything almost indistinguishable. The light-colored tufts you see in the picture above are the weeds. Here are my first efforts at weeding, in which I pretty much just give the weeds a haircut:
I took these pictures in early May, so these pictures are a little old.
I still have to weed about half of the plot, but between work and a toddler and a husband who isn't awake during the day, it seems impossible. But little by little, hopefully it will get done.
Well, I started feeling guilty for giving you pictures from a month ago, so I went and snapped some just now. Here's what it's looking like today:
Amazing, right? Even a bonehead like me could grow them. I've also got all sorts of other little miracles popping up in the planters on my patio:
|A melon (I'm hoping for honeydew but I'm not sure)|
|Herbs, I think Basil and Parsley|
This is the first year that I've ever really tried to grow anything, and I'm sure not everything will work out, but I'm learning a lot (for instance: the plants like to be watered EVERY day... huh).
I got Jane a teeny, tiny watering can so she can "help" me water our garden. The first time I gave it to her she didn't let go of it for 40 minutes. She sure is doing a lot of growing herself!
