Wow, I am very impressed with how healthy everything is looking on day 22 of my gardening adventure. I am learning patience and understanding that every day makes a massive difference in the lives of my plants. Everything is either flowering, fruiting, or sprouting. Half of the sprouts in my garden are coming up, I am trying to not lose hope for those that aren't yet. We just had 4 days of very cold, wet weather. The average was 40F-50F and it rained about 4-6 inches spread out over the 4 days. I thought this was going to harm my plants but it seems that the cool weather is alright as long as it doesn't freeze.

I have been pulling some weeds that are sprouting, there is also a lot of green debris around the dirt from all of the rain and heavy winds. I also have been making sure to pull off or cut off any dead or damaged growth on any of my plants.

Check out the progression - I have started a new thread since my other one has gigantic pictures to load. I have posted day1 pictures and day22 pictures and some in between for comparison. Yes in as little as 3 weeks you can see ripening fruit, I encourage anyone who is pondering the idea of starting a garden to do so! It is very rewarding!
