Let There Be Green!

Yay...the first sprouts of my fall garden are up!





Even the one tomato plant that didn't completely wilt and die in the sun has come back with some flowers. I hope a few of those flowers will actually manifest into fruit. Also planted Cauliflower (have a couple sprouts), Spinach (have one wee sprout), and two types of onion.

When the sprouts are a bit bigger I'll thin them out which is a ton easier than saying, "No, I can do it faster without your help," to Robbie during the planting process.

Oh, these are beautiful pics! And I'm so envious. I only dream of having a garden.

Thanks Liz. I used to have a huge garden in Oregon but moving to Nevada really threw me and my gardening skill for a loop. Our friend Maria motivated me to try again.

I have garden envy ... Living in the northeast doesn't allow for a winter garden. *sigh*

I'll have to live vicariously through YOURS! :-)

Sherri said...

LOL Marianne...thanks for stopping by.

How long before your first frost, Sherri? We're going to get a little chilly tonight, but I think everything but the brussel sprouts are mature.

I even have accidental watermelons!

Sherri said...

Frost :snort: what's that?

LOL, Maria

Still hitting the low to mid 70s during the day here and high 50s at night.

Oh, great. Now I want to move to Arizona!

Sherri said...

Nevada but close :grin: Hoover Dam's only 45 minutes or so away.

Duh. I forgot.

--I could have sworn Nevada got frosty.
