I the gardens topic, I just went out to check on mine. I'm SO excited! The potatoes have started growing in the feed bags, the onions are going crazy, tomatoes and peppers are still alive and growing, peas are going crazy and I think the spinach and lettuce are staying to come in (all a newbie trying to figure out what is and isn't a weed lol). I even saw that we have at least 3 sweet corn seedlings starting to come up the broccoli and cauliflower. ... I'm not sure if I see seedlings or a bunch of weeds lol and the green beans, I may have to start over with. For now, I'm going to go out and pour a few more green beans and peas in since I have still have some room still have to get the carrots, pumpkins, and zucchini planted. ... somewhere and waiting on the cucumbers to show themselves.
I am soooo glad to read your garden update! Last year I did my garden almost exclusivey from seedlings and it did so well that I decided to expand the bed this year. I also tried my hand at seed growing last year which also went well, so most of my garden was started with seeds this year and I started earlier than last year and outside (starting inside would have been a better idea in hind sight... live and learn ). I was FREAKING out because I wasn't seeing any movement at all for weeks and was afraid I was going to have to spend money to buy seedlings. That would suck right now because we are so broke it's not funny and anything extra is going towards chickens hehe.
Point being, it's great to hear that someone else local is experiencing the same thing, waiting to see what's a weed vs. what's a veggie?! Yeah, I'm livng it right now! We even have little baby corn stalks popping up in weird places from last year's uneducated harvest lmao! But wait on your green beans, they should be up shortly, mine just popped up Monday !
