Babies at Home

The P.E. coach at my school asked if I wanted to join him and another teacher for a drink after school. "Sorry, Coach," I replied, "I have to take care of my kids."

Astonished, he replied, "I didn't know you had babies at home."

I explained that I did, in fact, have baby sprouts in the garden and that they needed to be watered.

And aren't they so cute? The white onions are doing really well. We've also got radishes, red onions, and wild flowers. No sign of the carrots or spinach.

A couple of sprouts have appeared in each hole, so I simply snipped them down to one (since I planted them in a perfectly spaced manner). That's the extent of "thinning" in the square-foot gardening method.

I love spring.
