5-19-08 Garden Notes
I am pleased to announce that the green onions and basil finally showed sprouts on Sunday the 18th. I was getting a bit worried that they were going to show up. They just took a little longer than the rest. The arugula is getting bigger and a little bushier. I may have to look at thinning them in the next couple of weeks or so. I will have to keep an eye on them and see how things go.
My husband and suggested that I purchase a hoe and dig up the section of the yard by the house and put the plants into the ground. I may do this, as I am not sure how well my broccoli and cauliflower are going to do in a pot, once they become larger. Also our windy weather seems to be dying down a bit, so I may not need to move them onto the patio for protection.
I have also started to think about putting some flowers, shrubs, or some other decorate type plant along the walkway up to our house. I will have to do a little bit of research and see what I come up with.

Congratulations on your sprouts, it's wonderful to see the first ones! I think your husband speaks good sense. Our plants do better in the ground than in pots, but that might have something to do with my ability to kill anything growing in pots. *lol*
I think that yoiur husband's idea is an excellent one. Perhaps you could alsu make your garden space a little bigger as well. Further I would suggest that you use a spade to double dig that ground and mix some compost in with it before transplanting.
Congrats on your sprouts. Glad they finally showed up. I always get worried when I don't see mine either. Best of luck and keep us posted.
