It's Alive!!!

I discovered the first signs of life from the seeds I planted last week! It was so exciting. I just had to take some pictures.

This is broccoli.  As you can see there are three plants there.  I'll thin them when they get bigger.
Here is some lettuce.  I'm not sure if it's the leaf or head lettuce.  I didn't mark the picture when I took it, so I don't know which square this particular little guy is in.  I'll thin these when they get bigger too.

This is my spinach.  I may plant more of this when one of the lettuce squares is done.  I love spinach, but didn't plan well enough to get more than one square right now.

I also have one little carrot seedling coming up.  But it was so small, there was no way I could get a picture of it.

I was so excited when I noticed my new little seedlings today, that I nearly jumped up and down to tell my husband when he got home.  It's so nice to finally see something come of all the hard work we've done getting our SFG setup.  It will be even better when we can finally harvest something and eat it!


  1. I know how excited you must be to see your tiny firsts. Soon they'll be big enuf to eat.

  2. Way to go! It's so exciting to see the fruits of our labor.

    I found you thru the Tuesday Garden Party.

  3. I'm impressed you can grow broccoli from direct seed- I always have to start inside first and nurse them along before transplanting out.:) Thanks for linking up to the Tuesday Garden Party!
