Planting seeds

We planted annual flowers in this bed two summers ago and vegetables last summer. I don't have a full plan for it this summer, but I planted seeds for salad and cooking greens in the back half today.

I have never successfully planted seeds directly in the garden. My failure began at the tender age of 7 when I helped a neighbor girl plant Bachelor's Buttons. I still don't know what Bachelor's Buttons look like because they never sprouted. The soil of this bed and my gardening skills are both only slightly improved over the conditions when I was 7, but I'm hopeful for some better results.

Rick laughed at my ruler, but, really, it was the only gardening tool I used with some sense of confidence today!
