With the generous help of my grandma, I am spending this spring and summer learning how to garden by plunging in headfirst. This blog is a narrative of my adventures.

Today I raked the rest of the Pro-Mix®, which was most of a bag, into the upper garden plot and smoothed out the soil. Then I got a row of carrots planted at last. I also planted another row of lettuce and spinach since the lettuce and spinach I planted in the lower garden (if it ever comes up) will all be ready at once and this row will provide a second crop.
I don't want to get too excited, but I think I saw two spinach seedlings in the lower garden. But no sign of any peas or lettuce as far as I can tell.
My lonely gardening buddy was back again today. Here's a better picture of him.
