Things seem to be going well. I'm still amazed that putting seeds into soil can actually result in food. It seems so basic and yet so foreign. We've had quite a bit of rain and wind but everything looks ok. I see actual tomatoes on the vines and arugula that I can already eat. I have to force myself to actually USE the herbs instead of just letting them sit there. I feel like if I use them now I won't have any later. I have to convince myself this is not true. I planted basil and parsley from seed recently because I know I won't have enough from the transplants. When I use fresh herbs I use a LOT! Talia and I printed out pictures of vegetables, colored them, laminated them and attached popsicle sticks with medical tape to use as garden stakes. Hopefully they will last a while in spite of this strange and rainy weather.
