It's especially fun right now, since we're eating some of the good stuff we've been working with all this time. It does require patience, however, and that's one thing I don't posses in great quantities. For instance, after planting seeds that say "10 days to germination" I am out there the next day and about 5 times a day after that willing the little seeds to grow. I'm almost ready to give up on them after 8 days, and actually mildly surprised to see the first tiny leaves peek out on the 10th or 12th day. How funny is that? I will say that because of this impatience, it is the most carefully tended and well watered patch of earth around - at least until the little ones show themselves! :)
Sweet basil ready for the spaghetti sauce for supper last night.
Spinach and beet greens ready for steaming (to be eaten with salt and butter). This will probably be about the last of the spinach, since it's beginning to bolt. Hopefully this fall I'll plant it again.
