I showed you my seed starting project just yesterday, but I’ll admit the planting actually took place several days before that.
Several days meaning… this are what those little seeds look like now.
And, in fact, I’m in hopes of getting these little sprouts into the garden later on this week, or maybe this weekend…depending on how the next couple days of growth go. Just look at those beans already leafing out.
In the meantime, I’m pleased with how things have started out…even though I was equally excited last year before every little seedling died.
After all, these look like pretty happy little seedlings, right?
Even the corn has sprouted. We’ll see if it actually grows!
Also, in the category of garden updates, the strawberries are doing pretty well… but I’ll probably be planting more this year because not all of them came back…
And to be honest, I’m showing you the other side of that bed…can you tell I’m waiting to weed until we’re ready to plant? yikes.
In other news, the blueberries are full of little blooms that I’m hoping turn into berries.
The raspberries didn’t come back like I wanted them to, but there is a nice start at the bottom…still, I’m not optimistic we’ll have berries this year. Bummer.
Oh, and the rest of the things we planted last year are also doing okay. For the most part.
The holly is alive (yay!).
And both burning bushes are going a mile a minute at this point. Please excuse the weeds. We are aware we have a problem…we just haven’t taken any steps to fix it yet.
On the front, most things have come up…
But we did lose a few…

And yes, I know we need to add some mulch. That’s normal. It’s also normal we are behind on doing it. No worries, we’re all focused on other things right now so the mulch is just having to chill out there until we get to it.
So, that brings us back around to the seeds, which I’m crossing my fingers and wishing on all the lucky stars out there that they’ll make it to the garden…because sadly, they also will just need to chill out until we get out there to get them in the garden…
What have you planted already for the year? Flowers? How early do you commit to the summer season and set your little plant babies outside?
