Weeds or Seeds?

I am pretty impatient with this whole garden!! I have some green stuff sprouting up, but I am not sure if the greens are peas pods, onions or weeds! So I guess I won't be pulling them up until I know it's a weed for sure.
We had some good rain here over the weekend too so my garden is nice and damp and the crops should prosper--right??? My wonderful mom in law brought me quite a few strawberry plants the other day, but she told me not to put them in my garden unless i wanted the whole space to be taken over by strawberries. So now I need dear husband to build some wire fence contraption to keep our dog out of my berry plants!
I am also in the mood to plant some type of wild flower(s) mix around the garden fence. Any ideas? I love recommendations on topics I know NOTHING about.
I have a great giveaway coming this week...stay tuned!

How fun! My mom just came by our house last Saturday and planted tomatoes, sage, mint, cucumbers, a banana tree, and lavender w/ our daughters. I think I was more excited than my girls, and they're 5 and 3...LOL! Best of luck w/ your garden, and great post! I'm looking forward to eating what we grow b/c these pesticide-ridden foods are beyond insane!!

You are great to try a garden. I don't have a green thumb I have a black thumb so I don't even bother to try.

Execumama~ Thanks for stopping in! You have some fun stuff in your garden! So far, mine is quite boring! I can't wait to grow some clean foods as well....my well intentioned dad brought me some PREEN weed killer the other day!! None of that please!

Hey Renee! My dad has the major green thumb, but I don't think it was genetic. Maybe pulling the weeds, but not growing stuff!
