Picture a Day #114 – Sprouts!

We had such a warm weekend, that just three days after planting seeds in my container garden last Friday, I have sprouts. Most of them are radishes, but there seem to be a few carrots and lettuce sprouts as well in some of the planters.

While I was admiring the sprouts, I noticed this interesting insect on the leaf of one of the sunflower plants. Can anyone identify it? I hope it’s friendly!

      Actually, I think this is a crane fly. Looks like a mosquito, but quite a bit larger. Thanks for enjoying the sprouts!

    Wow, only 3 days? That’s quick! Geez, now I am having a bad feeling that the seeds I planted on Easter day won’t sprout afterall…

      Don’t give up! Plant some more seeds, and keep them moist. One year all my seeds washed away in heavy storms…
