As proof of this cycle, my garden has sprouted, been thinned, and thrives. In a couple more weeks, I will have full grown radishes and lettuce. The strawberry plants have blossoms, and the herbs are now established. The tomato plant has grown two feet.
My only failure, thus far, is the moss graffiti. I'll redo it this weekend with a different recipe that makes more sense. If it works, I'll post the recipe here.
I hope everyone is having a wonderful spring!
