* this bud’s for me …

Posted on April 26th, 2009 by melinda in the chronicles of gardening

Holy green gobblins garden groupies … we have some buds coming up. I must say I am super excited! Yay for me (yeah fine, yay for Richard too) but mostly I just want to take all the credit. So far the seed packages have been true to their word, the instructions said and I quote “you should see sprouts in 8 – 10 days”, today was the 8th day. Y’all should’ve seen me doing my happy veggie sprout dance … it was quite the sight I can assure you. NO, the neighbors did not call 911 because they thought I was falling out, they just looked at me a little odd. Besides, it’s Sunday, the race was on and I’m sure Tim (my next door neighbor) was seeing 2 or 3 of me by late this afternoon, so he probably didn’t think much of it. On second thought, the vision of 2 or 3 of me dancing all at once may lead someone to call 911 on their own behalf instead of mine. Maybe that’s how one should gage when they’ve had enough to drink and it’s time to put down the beer. Lots of melinda’s dancing, equals time to stop drinking. Now y’all know the real reason we don’t drink at our house. How did I get on the subject of drinking? Weren’t we talking about our my veggie garden? Y’all distracted me. It’s your fault, not mine. Let’s move along …

these would be some okra sprouts (somebody better be getting some corn meal & grease ready) …

The squash, cucumber & sweet corn seeds haven’t poked their little heads out yet, I guess we’re saving the best for last. Check back in a few days & hopefully we’ll be making some progress with them also.

I have a bunch of weekend camping/birthday pics to post. I just haven’t got them all downloaded, cropped & resized yet. I am worn out, I don’t know what crazy person thought sitting up by the fire until the wee hours of the morning was a good idea but I am way too old for that nonsense, I need my sleep. Check back for those pictures too!

me.
