Spring Garden 2012: Week Six

The spring garden is growing like gangbusters. With daily inspection and removal of worms the cabbage have bounded back from their pest infestation. The lettuce and arugula are growing faster then we can eat them. Spinach is starting to look like spinach. Actual strawberries are appearing and we're becoming more certain that the leeks are leeks (and not chives). Two weeks ago three tomato plants were added: Beefsteak, Phoenix (like the symbol of Atlanta) and an heirloom. As well as an eggplant and three types of peppers. Dinner for the rest of the week will be lettuce from our garden with soft boiled eggs!

And while the plants love the springtime sun for growing.... it seems Topher loves it for something else - napping.


  1. So jealous of all your beautiful plants! We don't have a yard, so I am always dreaming of the day when I can grow my own produce. The farmers market will have to suffice for now.

    1. Thanks Clair! I hope you someday have the space for a vegetable garden. They are surprisingly fun and rewarding. I think you'll really enjoy the work!
