Pulling up and putting down

I harvested the buttercrunch lettuce and baby spinach, then worked up the bed and planted green beans, bush and pole….

It takes a great deal of faith to plant seeds, but they are the most inspiring component of gardening, in my humble opinion.  4inches apart, 1/2inch deep, cover them up, water them, watch them, wait and see.  They know what to do. I threw out zinna seeds around the newly-transplanted black-eyed susans–1/4inch deep, tamped lightly.  I have some hyacinth bean seeds and some cardinal climber seeds to put out, but I’m going to soak them first to give them a headstart.  Inside each seed is everything they need to grow and bloom.  Just like us, but often we don’t realize it.  Patience.
