True leaves and other growth, and mud

The lettuce decided to start growing true leaves after today’s watering.


However, they are leaning a lot to reach the light since we only have one:


But it’s enough to grow things so I’m happy. More celery is coming up, the onions are all showing green stems and we now have tomatoes sprouting:


They look a little pale and weak I think, I’ll watch them carefully.

I thinned out a few lettuce and cabbage, even as thin as my fingers are I still managed to get too many seeds in a couple spots, one had 6 in the same spot. Oops. I should have used the tweezers like I thought of last year!

In other news, we got a wicked rain storm that knocked out our DSL for a few hours yesterday and all night til after noon today, but my 2 year old didn’t mind a bit:

Oh to be 2 again :lol It took me 20 minutes to get all the mud off the kitchen floor when he came in, and we stripped him right at the door and took him to a nice warm bath!

    Reminds me of me when I was little! Except we had lots of snow…after all there is only so much you can do with a puddle! Looks like he’s having fun! I remember when my kids were little I used to tell them they haven’t had fun unless they come in dirty! Now I can’t get them outside at all 🙁 teenagers!

    Celery, huh? I tried to start some once- took forever! Next time I try it will have to be in micro soil blocks so they don’t take up so much room! Good luck with all the seedlings- I’ll keep watching 🙂

    I like your new blog look. Your two year old is adorable. Boy it has been raining cats and dogs lately. I’m glad your DSL is working again. Your seedlings look very promising. Cheers.
