Is it too soon to declare victory?

The weather has been absolutely phenomenal for the past couple weeks here in Tacoma, and my plants are thriving! Every day this week, I've clipped a few leaves of lettuce and some herbs for salad (and it was yummy!), and my daughter's sunflower plant has revived outdoors. My spinach (which I planted in a container outdoors about a month after the rest) is budding and growing, although it's too soon for a harvest there.

Given what I wrote months ago about my previous failures with growing things, can I declare a victory yet?


  1. I declared victory when I grew one vegetable, since that's one more vegetable than I grew last year. Anything else that comes along is a bonus!

  2. Thanks, Skye! That's a good way to look at it!
