Growing Garden

For those who, like me, have never grown anything other than some patio tomatoes and herbs, this post is for you. This is what mesclun lettuce looks like after about a week. The larger leaves along the edge or about two weeks old. The most adorable lettuce I've ever seen! I can't wait until it grows large enough to eat though.
And can you see the teeny tiny green sprouts in the photo below? Look hard. Those are teeny tiny baby carrots. I planted a row of peas and two different squash plants too. But so far, I don't have much excitement on that front. Come August I should be eating veggies grown from my very own baby garden though!

And this is a peony grown by daddy-o. I LOVE LOVE peonies!! They just make me smile!

I love your little sprouts and what a pretty peony! I have been trying to grow daisies but my daddy moved the pot over into the shade and it killed all but one plant - phooey. Since we don't have a yard we can plant in (we live in a condo) our back deck is full of potted plants including lettuce, peppers, tomatoes and herbs. Makes for some good cooking!
