Walter and I have been checking the garden every day since we planted last weekend – closely examining the dirt for any sign of green. And we've found some! Just the tiniest bits, here and there. Little sprouts of beans, peas, zucchini and swiss chard. (And a few weeds, which are much easier to find. Humph.) The fence is in place, protecting our tiny plants. Fingers crossed that the bunnies, deer, and other creatures don't find a way in.
