Last year's garden was a shambles because we had a newborn in the house. This year's garden is only slightly more organized now that Thea is a full-fledged toddler -- but still too young to sit in the dirt while I plant and weed. That said, I got into the garden this morning to pull a few weeds, and to pick the first crop of peas and massive handfuls of Swiss Chard (which probably should have been picked weeks ago).
For some reason, I also decided to try cucumbers and a tomato plant in hanging baskets. The ones in the garden itself are going gangbusters; the potted versions are healthy, but much less robust.
Earlier in the week, I finally got a million zinnia, daisy, sunflower and hollyhock seeds into our back beds. Last year, I put them in too early. This year, I hope I'm not too late!
