There is Something Happening!
See that? See it? What? You don't see it? LOOK!
That is a Turnip. Honest. Very exciting!
And this! This is Kale:
What do you mean, you can't tell the difference? Hah!
Um, well, neither can I. But I know where I planted them, and all plants look similar when their cotyledon leaves poke through. Those are the tough leaves that break open the seed, and push up through the soil. They fall off once the real growth starts.
So, we will have something growing in our little garden elephants. But the first sprouts are few and far between. I am choosing to be optimistic. The other little buggers will poke through later this week. Right? Right?
No sign yet of the carrots, cabbage, broccoli, or beets. But I know they are coming too.
Well, at least I hope so.
That is all for now. I made signs for all the elephants, but stopped short of making them look like tombstones. Pictures to come later. Maybe.
