Planter Shmanter: Thank you sunshine!

What a difference a few days of sunshine makes. Everything in the garden is growing so fast now that it's getting lighter and warmer. I think I definitely did a better job prepping my soil this year, and I am also not forgetting to water everything this time, so that helps. Yay growth!

I did plant my lettuces too close together, but they are still making lots of new leaves, and we'll be having salad in no time (if I stop snacking on them like a bunny every time I go outside). The carrot tops are all getting bigger and bigger. I haven't peeked to see what's going on under the soil on those guys yet, though. I don't want to jinx them.

My peas are really enjoying their stick stakes.

And this is my baby potato plant, growing insanely fast! And guess what? He's got friends!!

All six of my potato chunks are becoming plants! This is crazy. :)
