Despite my feeble efforts, due to swim meets and other activities, my garden has sprouted! I marvel every year at the miracle.....
For the life of me, I can't figure out how to grow spinach. Anyone have any ideas? Varieties? Tricks? I just doesn't want to sprout.
My accidental and possibly unfortunate trick for getting the seeds to sprout so fast happened a couple of weeks ago. We had been expecting rain and of course in Arizona, no one expects rain when they tell us. I had left my container of seeds outside thinking to myself that I would "get to it tomorrrow." Yeah, right.
I woke up a few days later to the sound of rain on my roof.
My collection of seeds were soaked.
All of them.
Including the ones I can't plant right now.
So I hastily planted the ones that I could, including the carrots, peas, lettuce and more cilantro.
Kept the ground wet.
And by golly, they sprouted!!
I've got a new patch of carrots, soaked and planted this morning along with the flowers. Trying another experiment this year.
And tonight I'm going to a class to learn how to grow fruit trees in small spaces.
Like back yards......
Here's hoping for more success.....despite my feeble efforts!
