Went out to the garden after work today, and at first glance I was disappointed. Then, after a second closer look, there I saw it. The first glimpse of life in my garden. I planted some lettuce last Saturday, and today there were about 15 little "sprigs" coming thru the soil. I was real excited to see this. My wife said they were weeds and laughed.:) She has a good sense of humor. So I told her in a couple of months we would have a fresh salad of weeds.:D She just laughed.

Woohoo! It is always exciting to see the first seedlings of the year emerge.

Great to hear! I had a similar moment with some spinach I neglected. Isn't gardening a blast!
