Rain, Seedlings and Vines

We had a decent rain last night, and dodged a hail bullet. The garden love the rain, and the straw bale seedlings came through fine.

I put in a second grape vine today. I have to do a bit of research, as these are the first grapes I've put in. Usually I just munch the wild grapes (which are yummy!). I'll be using the vines as a natural fence for the end of the garden.

I rigged up a small windowsill greenhouse for a giant pumpkin seed. I planted it on the 27th of May, and today, June 3rd, the seedling has sprouted and is about 1 1/2 - 2" tall. No fertilizer either. I don't think I've ever had something sprout so fast!
