Last weekend, Tim and I planted the seeds for this year's garden. We made an effort to get an earlier start than last year.
We stuck with the usual suspects — red lettuce, green lettuce, zucchini, and pumpkins for the vegetable garden and California poppies and wild sunflowers for the flowers, as well as some Icelandic poppies and black-eyed Susans from some old seed packets that have been around for awhile.
About midway through through the week, I saw the first tiny sprouts of lettuce. No signs of anything else, but the lettuce is going gangbusters. There are five or six containers of each, with several seeds in each. Last year, we had several lettuce plants clustered together, and they seemed to do just fine.
I've turned each lettuce container a couple of times today. It doesn't take them very long to turn toward the sun.
