5:17pm, 64°F, overcast
I started today off (well, sort of, I guess it was already 11am) by planting carrots at my boyfriend’s place. They aren’t really great for containers since they need room to grow downwards, but he had a patch o’ dirt that seemed to be free of most things. He’s out towards the coast, [...]

8:43am, 70°F, plants are outside

It’s got three leaves now, and has streeeetched out quite a bit so that it’s sort of flopping over [...]

Well, around April 8th, I’d planted some zucchini seeds. The seed packet hadn’t included many—just three or four, and some were chipped up. I wasn’t sure that they would sprout, and for days, the pot remained dark with dirt, no green to be seen.
Some impressive leaves were pushing their way through, and by tonight, [...]
