Week 4: We have edible lettuce, and many of our sprouts are large enough to be thinned and transplanted. Last night, we separated many of the lettuce greens into a more spread out pattern. Because the weather has been quite warm this week (90+ degrees), we have had to be extra careful to ensure that all the fragile sprouts get plenty of water and protection from a massive population of hungry bugs.

Another undertaking this weekend was the clean up of our home office. I would post a "before" picture, but the sight was nearly too hideous to share with the general public. At any rate, we removed a useless piece of furniture (now in the be donated), creating a new expanse of space in which to comfortably fit all the computers. It's become a great room--complete with TV, stereo and every type of computer you could ever need.

By the way, I'm sure you know (or can guess) that most of "my" posts are Betty's :)

After three weeks, we now have a variety of seedlings. The picture above shows our salad greens, radishes, carrots, green onions, and asparagus (there's one small unidentifiable sprout to represent the asparagus planting). In the far left in the picture are some transplanted lettuce and pepper plants that are doing very well now, after they had spent months struggling in a small container.

The picture below shows our two broccoli sprout and three bean sprouts. Mr. Slinky did not feel up to be photographed this morning, but he has finally been helping the graden by staying out of the planters and guarding them from the sidelines. You can also see in the background our tomato, cucumber and zucchini plants, which continue to produce more than enough for us to eat (and give away to friends)!

We have sprouts! One week after planting in the new planter boxes, new sprouts have begun to pop up!

For our winter garden, which we are staring now, we planted radishes, carrots, green onions, a variety of salad greens, and asparagus in planter box 1. In this picture (below) you can see the radish and salad greens sprouting.

In the second box, we planted green beans and broccoli. As you can see from this next picture, we have one broccoli sprout and two bean sprouts.
