Near the vegetable garden; there was a faint green haze yesterday; and today, tiny leaves!

But not near the flower garden:

Even though both areas were seeded on the same day. The only difference I can think of is the soil: The flower garden, if anything, gets more sun. However, it’s by the sidewalk, so it gets all the winter grunge from the plaws. Also, the earth is bare because webworms killed off the lawn (which I don’t think is a bad thing). However, although web worms might go for clover (they didn’t last year) I don’t see how they would prevent clover seeds from sprouting. Maybe tomorrow.

And since this is May 1, only 30 days ’til Memorial Day, when it’s finally OK to put plants in the ground in the state of Maine.
