Dirty knees! Look at these!

Well!  It's official.  I have a garden! My experience so far is I LOVE THIS!!

It's only been a couple weeks since I first went to my community garden plot and started plucking away at weeds. (They're everywhere right now, but tiny and I don't want to pull what might be seedlings.) I absolutely love getting covered in dirt.  I would like to invest in some gardening knee pads, among some other tools, but it certainly didn't slow me down to get right in there with my hands and on my knees.
My nice jeans!! Meh... It's only dirt...

I was incredibly ecstatic to see my first little pea sprout.  It looked so determined! I was all like "Go little pea plant go!!"  I have yet to see any carrot sprouts.  I'm starting to get a little worried, but I'll give hem a few more days to make an appearance.  

I am very anxious to see some produce.  I didn't get any starters done before planting season started so I went and purchased a number of plants from a greenhouse.  Maybe this fall I'll be able to collect seeds to use for next year.  And I'll do my best to get some of them started ahead of time. 

I was a tad disappointed at the plastic containers that my starters came in. But I kept them to use for doing my own next year.
