Playing in the dirt - I mean, planting seeds.
We planted cucumbers, carrots, tomatoes, marigolds and peppers, keeping them inside in egg-cartons. Everything came up except the peppers... I think the seeds were old. But then the wedding busyness hit full-force, and I didn't get around to building the raised bed and planting them as soon as I should have. By the time we got to this stage:
...only the tomatoes and a few marigolds remained. I planted some herbs right into the ground - nothing yet. As of yesterday, all the marigolds had died off, too. I knew my thumb was brown! How can someone love plants as much as I do and yet be so terrible at keeping them alive? Ah well. At least we had fun trying!
