The early vegetables I planted a couple of weeks ago in my garden are coming up nicely. Last year I planted only tomatoes, but ventured out this year and planted beets, radishes (pictured), red leaf lettuce, and spinach. In a few weeks, I will have to plant wax beans.

The Dog Violet is a really pretty hue of blue and purple, and can be found almost everywhere along the trails and roadsides of Minnesota. I have a similar type of wildflower violet in my back yard, but I found this one in Nerstrand State Park this spring.

I planted my Red Brandywine tomato seeds about a week ago and transplanted the sprouts into the cell pack above yesterday. I learned a ton growing tomatoes last year, and six plants overwhelmed me and my garden, as this tomato grows huge! So this year I plan on keeping four for my garden, and giving any other plants away.
Feel free to read my series on Growing Tomato Plants from Seed, which I wrote for the 2009 growing season.
