Things are poppin'

Went out this morning to find several spinach sprouts poking through the soil.

As well as some real pea sprouts (as opposed to the weeds I mistook for peas the other day).

Transplanted my broccoli and cauliflower to the garden with cutworm collars made from cut up cereal boxes.

Lastly, I planted the first of two squares of swiss chard. Here's the garden ready to rock and roll. It's exciting to see the squares starting to fill with plants.


  1. Good idea on the collars for cutworms. Strangely enough, I've never seen any damage in my garden. I guess I'm lucky!

  2. I figured better safe than sorry. I'm not growing enough plants to really afford to lose any. The collars were free and quick to make so why not. This being our first garden here, I'm not sure what pests we'll be dealing with.
