And waited some more.
Because the seed packet told me to, I started the pumpkin seeds indoors (while everything else went to compost outside). Little pumpkin sproutlings are now reaching out and stretching their legs. This is the only life I have seen out of all of that planting, and watching, and waiting..
It’s kind of discouraging.
|Yes, this is a coffee-cup-turned-plant-pot!|
But then today, Lila noticed something peeking out of one of the other “pots” we had living indoors. Another little sproutling is joining our garden! Hooray! It’s not a complete and utter loss!
This tiny little fella has re-invigorated my desire to make my dream garden a reality. Tomorrow, the girls and I will plant our seeds (part deux) into our little pots, and we will keep them inside until the weather warms. I’m hoping that we will have more little plants to join our pumpkin triplets.
This gardening thing has a bit of a learning curve, methinks.
