Our 10-day forecast consists of all rain, which isn't good for me or the veggies. They need water, of course, but the seedlings seem to be slow going without much sun. We do have carrots sprouting. These are too close together and need to be thinned out, I think. They are the tiniest seeds and difficult to place with any precision.
There were two highlights for me on Saturday. The first was planting leeks. If I wasn't covered in dirt by that time, I would have taken some pictures, because it was such an interesting process. The leeks came in a 4-inch pot, and looked like a clump of grass.
You can see someone has started building a rock wall around the border. On the right, from back to front, is where we planted cherry tomatoes, brandywine tomatoes, two sweet banana peppers, an eggplant, two basil, two parsley, a dill, six cilantro, and 28 edamame plants. Yes, 28. We might live to regret that, but we had the room and the seeds, so we'll see how that goes. We're waiting a couple of weeks to plant the cucumber, zucchini and butternut squash. They'll go in the back.
The other highlight of Saturday was planting these babies (I caved).
