Gardening: Anticipation, Now We Wait

According to the package and everything we’ve read. These radishes should be first out, in about one week.

Carly Simon said it best:

“We can never know about the days to come
But we think about them anyway…
Or just chasin’ after some finer day

Anticipation, anticipation
Is makin’ me late
Is keepin’ me waitin'”

Well, Carly was talking about some guy she met, but if she were a gardener I’m sure she’d agree that these lyrics ring true while waiting for the fruits of your labor to arrive in the garden.

Most of the set up work is done. All three raised garden beds are as full as we dare fill them. The last frost (last night) is definitely by us…and we will transfer all of the warm weather loving seedlings to portable containers this weekend.

What’s left? Peppers, cabbage, cauliflower and one surviving rosemary plant.

Most of what is left is watering, feeding, weeding and waiting.

Operation Green Thumb should see its first harvest ready crop in one week. Radishes
