Giving Up

I have been TRYING and TRYING to post a cute video of Joey that I have, on a playground, but I just cannot get it to work. I've been trying all weekend.

So in lieu of cute Joey pictures, I have some pictures of our backyard after I planted our flowers and vegetables. I have tons more to catch up on from Christmas, etc, but I'm going to try to pace myself. (shouldn't be too hard ;-)

The 3 rows in the middle are seeds, 1 row of turnips, 1 of beets and 1 of broccoli. They are now all up. The turnips came up in full force, about every seed I dropped, so now I need to pick out the best ones and replant them in my row. the beets are coming up slower and more like about 1/2 of the seeds dropped, but it is really need to watch them because the shoots are all dark red. The broccoli I probably won't have to do anything with. The seeds were bigger and they are well spaced. I can't wait to see how it all turns out. Of course it could warm up too quickly to really yield anything. Today it was 60 degrees when we went to church!

Wow, so your growing season has officially started?? That's wild! Do you expect it to be that warm through April? I'm so jealous! I *just* got some lettuce seeds sprouted in a cold frame, but it's still below 45 degrees most days. :(

Want pics of Joey, not jealousy-inducing pics of your ridiculously early garden.....

*grumble some more*

Awww, reminds me of our little garden under the tree on the side of our townhouse on Pleasant Hill...kinda ghetto, but it worked and yielded some food! :) I am also jealous, though, that we have to wait so long before we get to plant and enjoy the benefits of our own garden again...!
