The upside to all this forced sitting? I'm caught up with all my mending. My house is a wreck, of course, but at least I'm caught up with something.
This week's You Capture theme is sunshine.
Naturally, I thought of my little Miss Sunshine, sitting in the sunshine looking all beautiful
|Grace (6 years old)|
with her sweet, sunny personality.
She's always ready to be goofy, too. :)
The sunshine has been doing its work outside in my little garden box. This is what the zucchini and salad looked like on Thursday of last week:

Now, on Monday, everything has sprouted! (Click on the photo to enlarge.)
|Can you tell I had input from the kids on what to grow? However, they had absolutely no say in how much salad I planted.|
I have some thinning to do, of course. I planted extra of...well...everything because I was planting several seeds that were a few years old and I didn't know if they would even sprout. Some are doing better than others, like this plot of zucchini, which is the same one pictured above and now has three seedlings:

The other plot of zucchini isn't growing as much so far, but there's another brand new sprout poking its little green head through the soil so it's not through yet.
I have high hopes that this year we will actually grow more than herbs and one lone zucchini that we can eat. :)
Photos are SOOC except for cropping and text added...of course. :)
