It is not to say she does these things
with style or grace, or even skill.

Garden Attempts by Novices - Take 6

April 21, 2007 - 1:56 PM

More water.  More prayer.

We watered again today.  My friend Leslie had her lettuce seeds coming up after only a couple days.  We have yet to see any action on our seeds.  Again, I figure if we don't see anything by next Friday we will replant.  Our site is really windy too so our broccoli plants are getting a run for their money but thankfully the store we got a lot of them from had them in a windy spot as well.  The maggot mats stay down only with the help of those mud rocks but no cutworms have attacked them yet. 

I have never been so nervous for something to grow in my life!

    I bet you haven't spent much time out in your garden during the last couple days if it's raining as much in IC as it is here in Ames!! I bet your plants all have plenty of water though...
