More little green things

By | 17th July 2009

Very exciting. The mixed leaf salad seedlings are now big enough to see from a distance 😉 and the carrots are showing their faces, as are the spinach beet. I checked the courgettes last night and found a little clod of earth lifting up so I removed it to find a little shoot trying to push it over. Today it’s got leaves!

The pumpkins aren’t showing any signs of life yet, and the squash isn’t looking too happy. I think the heavyish rain has actually splashed it with mud. Oh well. The orangey-pink thing is half a grapefruit skin as an attempt to catch a few of the gazillion snails that infest our garden. If that doesn’t get them, the liberal sprinkling of slug pellets might. *smirk*. Nassty snaileses, we hates ’em. (Oscar likes them, though. “what a friendly little snail!”)
