Little Plants and a Little Bird (March 3 Garden Project)

April 2, 2010

To celebrate a rare 80 degree April first in Chicago, day of shorts and sandals, day of open windows and busy bike paths, Ellen and I transplanted our little seedlings.  They looked like this:

leeks and Hamburg parsley

We removed them from their starter trays and teased them into individual plants, like this one.  Imagine, one day this will feed us!

Speaking of feeding, time for lunch!  Ellen whipped up a tasty Mexican lunch, complete with home-made corn tortillas.  Yum!  This yard-sharing thing is great since in my case I get access to a yard for gardening and a fantastic chef for working lunches!

Now our seedlings are in the on-deck circle…

What would a March 3 Garden Project blog post be without a gratuitously cute chick photo?

      Not your imagination Melanie, they’re growing fast! And actually, that brown one is the smallest of the bunch — the others are even bigger! Still, no eggs from them until August, but they’re fun to watch grow up.

      Laura, you’re welcome anytime. We’re having a large, shade-causing tree removed this week, then we’ll lay out the beds and get planting. So far, nothing’s in the ground, but coming soon!
