Garden Time is Here Again

It got warm this year much earlier than last... after a whopping 4 inches of snow this winter I strongly suspected that there would be a blizzard in mid-April, but so far we're in the clear for any more freezing temps. Fingers crossed anyway.

Bryan trimmed a few small branches so we could get a little more direct light during the afternoons.

Our bed was weedy and looking a little worse for the ware, but we tilled and added more nutrient rich top soil.

We picked up all kinds of plants this morning while we were out! Seeds didn't work as well in past years because of the short growing season.

This year we'll have green onions, basil, red and green romaine, rocket mixed arugula, collard greens, rainbow chard, dill, lavender, oregano, rosemary, cilantro, parsley, mint, and whatever else I'm leaving out...

Nothing wrong with getting a little dirt on my hands every now and then!

  1. It is a wonder how much you can plant in the space you have. Good luck--you will make good use of it all. MaMaw
