The seeds I planted a few weeks ago are sprouting all over the raised beds. The seedlings all have their first set of leaves, but the “true” leaves are just barely growing in. At this point, it is hard to tell the weeds from the intentional crops. Hopefully another few days of warm sun will get them going enough to tell me what to pull and what to fertilize.
There are a few surprises in the garden beds. Exhibit A is the potato growing in the middle of the bed. It must have been buried in the compost pile and mistakenly spread into the raised beds. I’ll transplant that to the actual potato bed I planted this weekend.
I’m feeling a little discouraged right now with the progress of our garden. I’m not sure if I should wait it out, cover them with plastic to warm them up, or just buy some starts to take the edge off the waiting game. It’s May and I’m just ready already!
