My seedlings are growing well. In fact, I just posted a blog update about how they're growing:
I am so ready for gardening, too. This might sound strange, but I LOVE the smell of a good, earthy soil. (Is that weird?)
I am promising myself that I will keep the garden small this year, because my 2 yr. old and 8 mo. old might not let me tend to the plants as much as I'd like. I am only going to start a few plants, but hopefully a wide variety that I will still feel like it's a big harvest. My plans are: 4 cucumbers (the long, European variety), 2 cantalopes (I've never done well with these, but I'm going to keep trying!), 4 bell peppers, 4 broccoli, 4 cabbage, 2 Better Boy tomatoes, 2 Roma tomatoes, 3 yellow squash, 2 watermelons, 2 squares each of carrots and scallions (32 plants of each), 36 spinach, about 50 bush green beans, 12 lettuce (summer crisp and bibb), and about 40 beets.
I garden using the square foot method, so there's very little space involved. I have a 16 ft. by 4 ft. section of garden plot, but I'm planning to put the Roma tomatoes in pots with a lattice.
