I took a peek, although I was not expecting any results for a couple more weeks. Low and behold, I discovered the tomatoes are coming up.
No sign of any jalapeños, but I'm sure they'll be popping up soon.

First, I offer some background information. If I had been thinking ahead I would of taken "before" and "after" pictures. Here's after:
My dog, Cody, really helped a lot during all this. You know, all the chasing, wrapping his leash around your legs and just generally getting under foot.
My first landscaping experience. I think it went rather well. For anyone that asks, I am indeed going for that old, worn, "what the ____ happened here?" look.
Those bricks came with the yard when we bought the house. They have probably been eroding for atleast a decade or two. Maybe three! Who's to say?
I think it's coming along very nice! There's only so much you can do on a budget of zero during peak baby nap hours. I was going to hose the bricks down for the picture but really, I didn't think it'd make much of a difference.. and then there's the fact that we don't have a hose, yet...

In this first container, the first six squares from the left are jalapeno peppers, the rest: tomatoes. I have no idea about gardening -- none whatsoever. All I know is that I tore up a whole lotta weeds and even some weird kinda baby trees in a spot in my yard. I turned the soil (learned that from my Dad) and away I went. I started these seeds indoors this evening.
The second container is all peppers. The rest of my seeds get started outdoors "after danger of frost." (meep!)
Well, hopefully my seeds do something or else this might be a very short blog.
