When A Plan Starts to Come Together!

Small plants coming up in garden in a pool

Planting a garden is a small act in creating a long term plan.  You plant seeds, water, watch and wait.  And then one day you see a little shoot of green poking up the dirt. This is my very favorite part or gardening!

The miracle of life and growth always makes me happy!  I walk around with a big grin on my face all day. There is nothing like a little miracle to remind me how wonderful life is and how grateful I am just to be alive.

In a few days (or weeks) which can seem like a month,  there are visible signs that something is happening: explosive growth (lettuce, spinach, kale and asparagus), sometimes flowers  and eventually  veggies start to form (zucchini, green beans, pumpkin and tomatoes  [I know, they are really a fruit]).

Once the activity starts I turn into a 5 year old in the days before Christmas.  Everyday I wonder if this is the day. . . The wait is interminable!

This week the waiting has been a little less painful because we are actually starting to harvest and eat things. Next to watching the seeds pop up, this is my second favorite part – the eating that is!

On the menu this week:  fresh from the garden were spinach, lettuce, zucchini, cherry and early girl tomatoes, lettuce, radishes, beet greens and onions. I took some pictures:
