Garden Club Friday

Time to check on how the little garden is coming along!

The tomato plants continue to grow, and are getting their new, more tomato-looking leaves.  I lost four plants to my "little helper".... he picked them right out when I wasn't watching.  In his defense, I hadn't warned him not to, and he certainly hasn't touched them since!  :)

Anyway, I don't know if you can tell in the picture or not, but the three little babies on the front right are the re-plants of the ones that had a premature uprooting.  The fourth is just appearing on the second row, far left.
And even though I am a little behind for our area, I am happy to finally see my lettuce!
The lettuce was really a fun afterthought, so I don't care nearly as much about it as I do the....

CORN!!  It is up!!!
I can count about half of what I planted, and I'm sure the other half is not far behind.

But get this:  we have big thunderstorms predicted to come through this afternoon and tonight..... including hail!  I'm afraid my poor little corn plants are going to get pelted!  It makes me kind of glad for the half still hiding out safely beneath the dirt!

You can go
here to visit other Garden Club posts for this week.

Lettuce is so fun, and delish!

I really need to get my carrots and my cabbage plants out, but we are suppossed to be getting a big snow storm so I'm reluctant.

Happy Gardening!

Looks great! I guess the whole country has gardens on hold this week. Thanks for posting to the Garden Club... I'll love watching your garden grow!
