They're alive!

This is the future garden site, although it is now totally un-sodded (about 96 square feet maybe? I don't know) and there is chicken wire around half of it. Classy.

And here are the seedlings:

The peppers have not come up yet, which is a little worrisome. Everything else is doing GREAT. And there's two or three ladybugs that have taken up residence amid the sprouting greens.

Hopefully I'll get myself together and start a slew of marigolds today because apparently they help keep pests (like rabbits, cats, squirrels, and cute-but-naughty terriers) from digging under the fence to feast on my veggies. I realize the squirrels will just climb over the fence, but I can only do so much.
