I’m attempting to grow some vegetables again this year. And yes, the “attempting” is there on purpose. I’m not great with plants, and last year I didn’t get as much lettuce or as many carrots and strawberries as I was hoping for.

But, I’m not giving up. I’ve just changed tactics. I’m focusing my efforts on zucchini, tomato, peas, and basil this year. So far, they seem to be doing pretty well.

A day or two after the plants started sprouting, though, I got a bit sidetracked. Instead of smiling down at my sprouts with pride, I was overcome with the urge to grab my camera. The moisture drops, which had developed because of the lids on my peat-pellet trays, just looked so pretty on the leaves.

I couldn’t believe my luck in finding a sprout that had three water droplets on it, instead of the usual one or two. So I snapped a few pictures; the one above is my favourite.

How about you? Are you planting any vegetables this year?
