Sprouts! We have sprouts! Hooray!
We planted our garden a mere 6 days ago, so I wasn't expecting to see any green for another week or so. However, this morning my little helper and I spotted tiny green sprouts poking through the soil! We have a wee row of spinach and a few eager radishes!
I've started keeping a gardening journal to log these exciting discoveries. The journal is nothing fancy. I'm using a pretty notebook I've been squirreling away for ages. (The notebook is perfect because it says "maison des gardins" on the cover.) Each day I jot down the little things that happen and the work we accomplish in the yard. Since gardening is a new adventure, I'm hoping the notebook will prove to be a handy record.
