Mighty Broccoli

Just a few weeks after putting seed to soil, I have tiny sproutlets that are promising delicious winter stirfries, stews, salads and the like.

Aren't they darling in a succulent and alien way?
Broccoli, Cauliflower

Carrots, Onions

And let's not even get started on this guy -- what an awesome monstrosity! He'll be going on my porch for Halloween.

More seeds to go in the ground this weekend, along with a much more sophisticated enclosure for the beds. It appears that squirrels are not deterred by arched hardware cloth and can, in fact, find their way in just fine to eat the tender tops off my sprouting lettuce. Which is why you don't see any lettuce sprouts in these photos. Grrr...

[2013 update: You can't comment as an anonymous person anymore. Too many douchebags were leaving bullshit SPAM comments and my inbox was getting flooded, but if you're here to comment in a real way like a real person, go to it.]

Look at you commenting, that's fun.

So, here's the thing with commenting, unless you have an email address associated with your own profile, your comment will still post, but I won't have an email address with which to reply to you personally.

Sucks, right?

Anyway, to remedy this, I usually come back to my posts and post replies in the comment field with you.

But, if you ever want to email me directly to talk about pumpkins or shoes or what it's like to spend a good part of your day Swiffering - shoot me an email to finnyknitsATgmailDOTcom.
