new beginnings

I've started a bit more seed, some Broccoli in a seedling tray, also Swiss Chard and Beets planted directly into their containers. Chard went into the same old pots, with fresh soil. When I tipped the pots out my toddler was delighted that I picked all the pill bugs out of the base (they hide among the shards) and put them in a drain tray for her to look at. She was highly entertained by watching them crawl around. Funny, some pots had tons of pill bugs in them, others none at all.
The Beets I sowed in my first planter box.
It will only fit four mature plants, but I sowed eight seeds so I can thin to the biggest seedlings.
