Yippy! Garden Sprouts and Starts Hardening

We have sprouts coming along!  There are 4 spinach plants, and they're all right next to each other. We thought we'd have more, but no such luck. I guess it is time to plant more. 


I'm looking forward to these sugar snap peas!


Radishes came up fast!


8-year-old tame dame #2 wanted to plant onions.  She planted onions 3 or 4 weeks ago, and it appeared only weeds had germinated. 
I went to pull the weeds today and found that some onions had actually sprouted. 
Onion sprouts are tiny, and my picture isn't the greatest quality, so you'll have to really look closely. 


We started to harden off our tomatoes and artichokes today.   They're taking it a bit hard.  It's only been 2 hours in the shade and gentle breeze, and the tomatoes are totally laying down.  Time to bring them in for the day and go for it again tomorrow. Hopefully they'll be in the ground next week.  

We plan to plant more seeds soon!
