The zucchini is really coming up now, I am basically jumping for joy. Mister Siren came out and took some great photos in the garden on Saturday and then we took some more today. The problem is only that it has been raining for five days straight. I am getting worried that this garden is not getting enough sun. I think it needs at least 6 hours a day. The basil, dill, and cilantro are not appearing and they are probably too soaked and need more sun. In addition, if the water does not have time to burn off, the tomato plants will develop fungus (I think.)

And today, Sunday:
Here are what the beans are looking like (really cute!):
Saturday, just poking out their wee heads:
And Sunday, totally showing their stuff!
Also making a showing were the beautiful mesclun greens in a row:
And I think these are the sugar snap peas, but won't be able to tell for a few more days, i guess:
My grandma told me to put down newspaper as mulch, and I was meaning to do this this weekend, but it rained all day! I need to do this, because the weeds are REALLY proliferating! Photos of weeds will be up soon for your viewing pleasure.
