Springtime Gardening lessons learned
My starter plants never quite got started. After 21 days, no sprouts. Lesson learned: start with new soil each year.
So, with fresh soil time to plot out a little rectangular area to see if this sandy soil enriched with Miracle Grow can make something happen.
After two weeks, some sprouts. Pumpkin, watermelon, squash, and cucumber. Nothing from the eggplant row though. Hmmm…

Seeds, except pumpkin, were leftover from 2017 so one reason for no show on eggplant. The pumpkin seeds were from the pumpkin we bought at the pumpkin patch in El Paso last October. Stored them in a cool dry place for the winter and they are the most hearty of all the plants there now.
