… Try, try again!!

We lost the zucchini we planted outside (not sure why?  it didn’t freeze…  maybe they just drowned??…), so I just started some more.

The good thing about planting too early is that you have plenty of time to plant again!  :)

Alfalfa sprouts are one of my comfort foods.  I have wonderful memories of them from my childhood and how much my Dad liked them.

…  So growing and harvesting them on my own counter top has me smiling from ear-to-ear!

hey… we lost our zucchini last year that we had started inside. We just plopped a seed in the ground outside and it grew like crazy. One of my friends said zucchini doesn’t transplant well. You could look into that! Good luck!

The other day I was wondering why you would want alfalfa. And now I’m realizing it’s the same thing as sprouts. Silly me! Now I want to grow some for salads. I remember my mom used to grow them in the kitchen.

Also… I don’t know if you’re still having trouble with legs through the slats in cribs… we had that trouble with truman… only it was his little arms getting stuck. I took a spare fleece blanket and folded it so it was long and about 8 inches tall. I weaved it in and out of the slats and tucked it on the ends (you could pin if you could figure out a safe way to do that). It has solved the problem of limbs getting stuck.

Good luck.

Oh – and tell your sister thanks a million for returning the book to the library for us!

We’ve started sprouting again too. It’s so nutritious and tastes great too. Glad you are enjoying all of your growing endeavors, your garden looks great.
