As a part of last week's gardening bonanza, I started some vegetable seeds. The future harvest includes mint, onions, carrots, radish, lettuce, zucchini, and cucumbers. For now, they are living in six recycled plastic containers upstairs under the skylight. Ever the anxious gardener, I get excited over every little change. Three radishes were popping up by the middle of the week and now nearly all the zucchinis (courgettes) and cucumbers are out. I'm surprised by how quickly the seeds germinated, pushing up their little codyledons. Of course, a couple early starters make all the rest look slow. Therefore, despite the early surprises, I'm still going to have to be patient for the rest to appear!
