Today we are taking care of business.
First of all, I just have to show you this. I try to be humble, I do. But you know what? The first green vegetable makes me a little proud and a little giddy.
Secondly, go check out the answers to the Annual Name That Sprout Quiz. Thanks to all who played. You're such good sports. Mr. H had the most answers correct (10 out of 12!). Congratulations, Mr. H!! If you haven't yet, you must visit his blog. Prepare to be utterly impressed. I must give an honorable mention to Stephanie. She may have only guessed one sprout but, with that guess, she was the only one who guessed correctly that #12 is stevia. We learned a bit late that stevia is difficult to start from seed, so we'll be buying some stevia plants this year. Stephanie obviously knew this (or she's just a really good guesser)- either way, way to go:-)!
The third thing I want to mention today is that we added a new installment to our Vegetable Gardening 101 Page. It's time to move some of our plants outside and our tutorial provides you with the information you need to take this next step (scroll all the way down the VG 101 page to the bottom). Don't be frightened by our cold frame below- you do NOT need one of these.
And, lastly, I want to show you a little something. Below is a picture of one of our side yards. Something is going to happen here over the next few weeks. Want to guess what it will be? All I'll tell you now is that I am super excited about it. Super. Excited. You'll never guess. Unless you know. Then please don't guess.
