Something's Growing!

Last week the raised beds finally got filled and I threw in the seeds I had bought from Baker Creek Heirloom Seeds.  I've been impatiently waiting for something to come up while fearing that the heavy rains that came for several days after planting would have washed away the seeds, or at least buried them too deeply to sprout.  Yesterday I finally saw a few tiny seedlings in the center bed.

It looks as if my Strawflowers, Dahlias and Giant Noble Spinach are coming up.  Now I've just got to wait for the other 14 types of plants to sprout!  At least my fruit bushes from last year look healthy!



 I got these last spring from Stark Bro's.  I'm hopeful that I'll get some fruit this year; last year the blueberry bush produced one berry and the raspberry bush produced a handful.  Nothing yet from the blackberry, that slacker!  And I know you've been eagerly wondering how my little 3 in 1 apple tree is doing.

Ta Da!
It's made tons of leaves and seems very happy in its new home.  For next year I'm thinking of adding a 2 in 1 cherry tree and maybe some dwarf pears!  I've never been much of a gardener before, but planting food is oddly addictive, I can't seem to stop slowly adding more to my little collection. 


  1. Hooray!! I told you that the seeds would eventually sprout. Patience Molly, patience!

    1. yeah, but still nothing in the other two beds!
