More Seeds & the 1st GREEN!

Yesterday, I planted these after tilling in some purchased garden soil. ($5 a bag at Walmart)

This morning, I planted these, also in that new soil. 

And I was so excited to see the first bit of green popping up from the yellow squash hill!

Preparing the Soil & Planting

Today, I did some long-awaited work in my garden. Because I'm pregnant and it got too hot, I didn't finish it. But here's what I accomplished. 

I tilled the soil and added some fertilizer granules and mulch.
I soaked the soil and tilled it again to allow the moisture to seep down deeper. 
And I planted these:

Yellow Squash
Iceberg Lettuce
Romaine Lettuce

I'm not quite sure about my soil. I think it is too sticky rather than nice and loose. I thought the sandy loam that I purchased last season would be better, but so far I am not too impressed by it. I hope that with added mulch, this soil can produce well.
