First planting this year

At home for the weekend. Things are stressful given the situation but at least we're able to spend some nice time together as well. Today I've been helping my dad plant his garden. First we tilled the soil in two of the raised beds, and I even used the rototiller a bit. I didn't really pick up the trick of it, as for someone as small as me it's difficult, but at least I did some. Then we dug shallow furrows for planting two rows of spinach, one row of mixed lettuce, and one row split half and half between radishes and spring onions.

The seeds are so tiny they are tough to handle. But my dad prefers to plant too many and thin them out as they come in, so it's okay if I drop them closer together than they should be.

We planted a row of peas on either side of this wire fence. They'll climb up the fence as they grow and sprout their pods.

And this a grub we found when we were digging. He's about the size of a quarter all curled up. He's the only one of his kind we saw. I wonder what sort he is?

I like growing vegetables. Someday I want to have my own garden, but for now it's nice to help out my dad.

Looks like a cutworm to me. They find plant stems and chew through them under the soil, as his name implies, so he's good to get out of your garden.
