The carrots sprouted!

The carrots have sprouted! I am thrilled! I thought maybe I had killed them by neglecting to water them at first. Both the carrot seed tape and the loose carrot seeds sprouted. Hooray!

I planted put the first of the fall plants: kohlrabi, radish, onion, leeks, celery, and broccoli.

I got some beans and a Cherokee Purple and a Marvel Stripe. Here are some pictures of the stuff that I’ve got in house:

I saved some seeds from that weird tomato from the farmer’s market and the Lima beans:

I think that the smaller squash may be dying. Here’s a picture from yesterday and today:

I thought it would be nice to take a picture of how scraggly tomato plants start looking this time of year:

I put some fertilizer on the tomatoes, squash, and beans. It was high nitrogen, which isn’t really the best for the time of year, but the package was open.

I'm Jenny Smith. I keep up with three cars, two kids, one husband, and I live on 300+ acres of rolling farmland in Northern Virginia where we look after an elderly relative. I like tomatoes, all things Star Trek, watercolor, and reading. I spend most days in the garden fighting deer and groundhogs as I pursue a graduate degree. I'm trying to be like Jesus -- emphasis on the trying.
