How does your garden grow? Fast!

I'm always amazed at how quickly the little green seedlings pop up in our seed starting trays.
After a week the broccoli has almost reached the top of the plastic greenhouse cover.
Two more jalapenos have come up since I took this picture on Sunday. We're pretty happy to see such good germination since these seeds were a year old. Today we saw the first of the ancho peppers start to peek through the soil too. Today we'll plant the sweet little carnival peppers, my special request for this year's garden. Matt spent the weekend digging out the old raised beds. He cut the two 8' x 4' in half to make four 4' x 4' beds. The dirt is still a little frozen so moving it around is hard work & he only got once bed put back in so far.

We did use a little of the bounty from last summer when I had some friends over last night to make homemade ravioli with the garlic scape pesto that we froze last spring.

That ravioli looks amazing. And all the better when it's shared with friends!

So much hope during this time of the year when all the little seedlings are sprouting and making their way up through the ground! Looks like yours are off to a good start.

We've not started on our gardens yet, but I'm growing eager to get out there and get my hands dirty!

I am so jealous of your cute little seedlings! I still have to wait one more month...

I really need to get into gardening! The ravioli looks great!

Lori said...

How exciting! I'm amazed too. I have some peaking through the soil and it has only been a few days!

Seeds are fine as long as they are keep dry and safe from mice. I've planted seeds that we bought at least 20 yrs ago and they came up just fine.

I planted garlic last fall and it's up about 4" now. Can't wait until garlic harvest this comig July!

I can't wait until it starts warming up here enough to plant!
