The vegetable garden is a haze of spring green, as all the seeds have sprouted and are growing daily. The greens and bush peas sprouted last week; the yellow beets yesterday. We're still waiting for the beans and cucumbers to poke through the earth, but they were planted just last week and we'll have to wait a few more days.

We are using a variation of the 'square foot' garden method. Small areas are planted and harvested with new sections being replanted throughout the summer. The potting shed contains seeds that cannot be put in the earth until danger of frost is past -- or seeds for plants that will replace those once harvested --- mostly green leafy veggies.
