My Backyard Vegetable Garden Endeavor: Part 4

My Backyard Vegetable Garden Endeavor: Part 4

We had a ridiculously cold winter that I wasn't expecting, and I planted my little seedlings probably too soon outside. We didn't have any "real" freezes but many nights in February it hovered around the freezing mark. Seems my garden overall did not grow much in February. Now Finally in March some things are doing well, some mediocre and a few things just didn't make it and I am going to have to start over.

Sad tomato plants- Slowly growing. Maybe they'll take off now that it has warmed up.
Carrots, green bean plants, lettuce, and broccoli are doing very well.

Zucchini on the right doing mediocre and to the right of that two very tiny cucumber plants barely still hanging on.
Romaine lettuce and spinach doing well. Wish I had planted some more. Parsley and sage doing well. Other herbs slow growing and the basil didn't make it at all. I'll have to try again with the basil.
Here is an old earth box I had from an older gardening endeavor. I took the plastic cover off and with just the rain we had (and no effort on my part) Garlic Chives and Parsley have emerged all on their own.

Thanks for sharing :) Mine isn't doing so great. I didn't know we were going to get hit with another cold spell. I think that was just wishful thinking of a very beginning gardener. I've been trying to cover them so I'm hoping to still have some success.
