Welcome to grow. eat. $ave.
…where we talk about what we are growing, how we transform our garden harvest into dinner on the table and how much $$$ we save in the process!!!
*Disclaimer: I apologize for any eye strain that might occur when looking at the photos of the tiny sprouts. And be warned, there’s a lotta dirt!
Can you see them?!? Barely sprouting up from under the dirt. Such promise. Such hope!!!
These are the first of the seeds to sprout…Arugula.
Arugula and Mustard Greens (bottom), 3 days later…
And the same Arugula a week after the first photo.
First of the spinach sprouts…
And more spinach sprouts a few days later. These will need to be thinned, as most spots have at least 2 sprouts growing in them. I’ll wait for the second or third set of leaves to show up before I thin them down to 1 plant per spot.
And the red cabbage sprouts. These are my favorite. Probably because they are the prettiest. (Tough to see in the photo.) The sprouts have this fabulous purple-magenta color around the edges of the leaves and underneath.
Sprouting is the gardening word of the week around here! What’s happening in your garden?!?
We just LOVE hearing what’s happening in your garden each week!!!
