Still growing and growing…

I wish I could show you a crop of something ready to eat, but alas, it is still a work in progress.  I think I am just impatient.  But, I do have some newcomers.

My radishes have sprouted!  I read that these were the easiest vegetable to grow, which is why they are a good choice for children starting a garden.  Not too shabby for older folks, as well.  I believe these germinated in 7 days.


My spinach and kale have also sprouted.  I am very excited about these two!  I planted spinach last year and it never came up.  I am quite certain it was too warm.  This year I planted much later and it looks promising.

The kale, I have never planted but wanted to try it.  Kale is a wonderful  green and I look forward to harvesting it.

I bought some of this frost cloth for my beds in anticipation of the first frost (not yet please!)  which can  sometimes make an appearance around here at Thanksgiving. 










 And these handy little spikes to hold it in place.  Much neater than the bricks or pots I usually use. hehe




Hope you all have a truly wonderful and safe Thanksgiving with your family and friends.
