Some of these came up fast & are hitting the plastic lid now. The tomatoes are just finally sprouting. Hopefully with the warm weather the next few days - these will flourish.

This home *with potential* will be going on the market soon. The way we discovered our house was by visiting this house when we were home shopping. So I kinda credit this cutie with setting us up with The Griffin House. Love the screen block - they need to make a glass wall to the right of it, it appears a garage was enclosed at some point?
The lot directly to the South of this home is on the market fo $24,500. It would amazing to purchase both and have a big private yard. :)
This home has brand new solar panels too.
I bought this nifty starter tray at Target last Sunday. Look at all the sprouts in just a week :)

This is what has sprouted so far: Genovese Basil, Eagle Pass Okra, KY Wonder Pole Bean, Marketmore Cucumbers and Luscious Sweet Corn (yes, that's it's name). Ironically, most of these are old seeds....

Still waiting for: Black Krim Tomato, Blk Beauty Zucchini, Mini Orange Tomato, Tigeralla Tomato, Cherokee Purple Tomato, Buttercrunch Lettuce & Trailing Nasturium.

I just heard that Lavender may be a (feral) cat deterrent so I am considering purchasing another tray and filling it with Lavender seeds and bordering my beds with it.

We also had our annual inspection today from AZ Organic - all is good. Knock on wood.

New Rule: No Weed Whackers at The Griffin House. Period.
We arrived back from breakfast to a shattered sliding glass door. Lawn guy. Sigh.
