Ok, Dale and I are NO experts when it comes to gardening. We know nothing about it, and just thought we'd kind of wing it this summer, see how it goes, and learn for next year. Dale is better than I am at keeping things green. I killed a potted cactus a few years ago, seriously, a cactus, and a house plant not too long ago.We finally planted all the seeds last weekend (I know, but better late than never!). We didn't do any starters in the house. I was just lazy and didn't want cups all over the place and, again, we figured we'd just "learn by doing" this year. Here's some of the cucumber peeking out of the ground. I think I'm supposed to thin it out in a bit- I'll have to double check. But hey- it's growing! In our super crappy soil that's mostly rocks and clay- yay! We figured, if the strawberries can handle it, perhaps the veggies can too.
Yay, they're alive! Maybe I have a green thumb hidden somewhere after all. I can't wait for more little green guys to peek out of the ground!
