Sprouts

Shortly before the phone call that once again rattled my bubble again...
(Go here to read about that one... and here if you didn't read the first part of the week's news)
We happened to look out at the garden while letting to dogs out - and we had SPROUTS! So what did I do... I had to take pictures of our little seedlings coming out...
Behold... our wonderful bounty from nature...
We have these little piles of the soil that are about to show us the beginnings of our green beans... this was after a little help from John uncovering the sprout. (Our Zucchini is doing the same thing.)

We have corn! These are starting to pop through the soil too.

All of our cucumbers are starting to show... which I'm still not sure what we are going to do with some of these veggies - I guess it's about growing things in the dirt more than eating them?

And finally, these are what caught my attention from across the yard... radishes... which have zero chance of crossing my lips... but they sure are neat to see a line of them growing!

My strawberry hopes have made way for us to plant a cantaloupe instead. So John is buying that plant today and will probably get it planted today - if it doesn't rain to much... or later this weekend when the rain subsides.
