Seeds Planted

I finally got around to planting some seedlings for some vegetables. My first time since a school project that I have tried growing vegetables from scratch.

Edward's Gardening Diary

With spring in full swing, I have started planted some seedlings for the gardens.

I have started onions, carrots, beets, radish, and broccoli.

I am hoping for a second crop of carrots and onions for sure, and hopefully beets and radishes as well.

Let’s see how they turn out.

Here are some pictures, the onions have already starting to sprout up. Hopefully, I will have a lot of success this year – fingers crossed!
