Seed time!

A few weeks ago I planted some seeds.  This is the first time I've grown kale, chard, and carrots in my plot so I thought it would be fun to document their growth this summer on the blog.  I'm obsessed with kale--I really can't get enough and Lacinato Kale is my favorite so I'm really exited to grow my own this summer.

It all starts with a seed . . .

A great day for the garden sale . . . until the sky opened up with a heavy downpour. Luckily I managed to get some great photos right before the rain. Lots of great plants and yummy treats for sale. More details as soon as I get them.
