Garden Update #6: The Garden is Growing, Well, Sprouting!

We have growth in the garden! I went out today to check on the garden, and we have quite a few things starting to pop up! We have made a few additions to it since I have posted on here. I have been reading about “scrap gardening” and have been planting some things that are scraps from the kitchen and those are starting to grow as well. The banana trees are growing, we added some new herbs, and I also got some celery from someone else in the neighborhood who had too much growing in their garden.
