Collards are growing!
I discovered the little seedlings popping up on Christmas Eve, I believe. I took this pic on Christmas Day. They are a little larger already and seem to be vigorously growing in the Miracle Gro soil. Love that!!! As you can see I just stuck about 5-6 seeds in each hole...knowing I would have to significantly thin and transplant most elsewhere! I already know of two other gardens they will go to, which is super fantastic for me...I want to keep what I can in my tires, and NOT have to prepare any further ground. My Mom and my cousin have their areas all ready to accept these babies in the next week or two, and all will be perfect!
I saw this succulent in my tire, and noted it's pink edges as of late...I love what happens to many succulents in bright winter light...the pink/red colors start to pop! This plant has such a pretty green color, and with this edging, it nearly makes me want to cry! I can get pretty emotional over my sux!!! LOL!
