All that green is not the lettuce, onions, and carrots I planted.
I shouldn't be surprised. We broke new ground, it is spring, the ground is fertile, etc. I am keeping perspective about it, remembering that we are new to this and that we will learn and improve with time. Still, I was really hoping to find a few more seedlings and a few less weeds.
The weeds are not restricted to the garden. Right now our yard is more dandelion than grass, and the chickweed is making its comeback, too.

On the brighter side, I do love all the flowers - weed, wildflower, and intentional blooms are all equally beautiful and welcome signs of Spring.
How about you? How is your garden growing?
