Seedling Guessing Game

My sister and I planted our broccoli, parsley, cabbage, and cauliflower seeds last night in little jiffy pots.  Just as we finished labeling the rows and started cleaning up, my six year old said, "Mommy, look at your plants!"  He thought he was making the rows pretty, and in the process, completely mixed up the planted seeds.  So...we will get to guess which plant is which.  Fortunately, the parsley and cabbage will be easy to decipher.  That said, we may have broccoli growing where our cauliflower is slated to be!  Instead of getting upset, I just had to laugh.  Oh the joys of being a mom:)

Cilantro and Parsley germinated

The cilantro and parsley both germinated (on January 23rd and 26th respectively) and are growing well.  I look forward to a great harvest this year!  The Dahlias, Geraniums, and Snap Dragons have also germinated.

Garden Plan for 2010

This is my garden plan for 2010. Each sqaure = 1 ft. x 1 ft. The garden beds are 4 ft. x 12 ft for the larger beds. See the legend on the third page for understanding which vegetables and plants are planted where.
