We also planted Romaine lettuce. It's so interesting to see how it grows and forms a head all on its own without any assistnance.
Spinach is next to the chard and tomatoes. How great is it when you can go out into your backyard, pick a plant out of your garden, cook it, and eat it ten minutes later. I keep telling my husband we should get some chickens, no roosters, just hens, so we can have eggs. He tells me the same thing he always does: "No more animals, Debra!"
He really freaked out when I put a picture of a mini-donkey in his birthday card and told him I'd bought him one for his birthday. Then he realized I was joking, but he knows I'd really like to get a mini-donkey. Every time I go to a festival and there's a petting zoo, I threaten to buy him a baby goat. It's not really for him, of course. It's for me, but I just tell him that I was going to buy him a baby goat, or a baby pig, or a miniature horse, so I can hear him say, "Debra, no more animals!"
