After running some errands, we came home to plant some romaine lettuce in the garden in the weird space where I did some sweet potato hunting a couple weeks ago. Tristan helped me dig the holes and place the new plants as well as pull up weed and grass sprouts in the garden. Aryssa tried to pull up sprouts too but the adult gloves made it a little difficult. I know that part of the success of a vegetable garden is a numbers game--the more you plant, the more likely you are to have a good harvest--so I've packed this garden probably past what it should be once the seeds start sprouting. It doesn't look like it now, but hopefully it will be brimming with life in a week or two. By then, I'll be able to harvest some lettuce at least. 😉 I'm loving this cooler weather, but I'm hoping a frost holds off until this time next month. Then, I welcome frost and snow and all that winter weather. (🎶 I'm dreaming of a white Christmas. 🎶) .
