Yesterday afternoon was spent in the garden. After cleaning up last weekend, it was time to get some potatoes in the ground. I also dropped in some onions and pea seeds. We'll see how they do. Its still too early for most of the other things we have planned to grow, but it sure felt good to get my hands in the dirt.
The chard made it through the winter even with all of the snow. And the chives are starting to come back out. The kale has going crazy over the last few days.
And surprise, surprise, there were a few onions that we missed when we picked everything last fall that have made it through the winter. And are now putting out new growth. It sure nice to see something so green in the garden.
So, for you Northerners with snow still on the ground, I hope this is a bit of encouragement that Spring IS on the way. I promise!
While driving to take Wyatt to pre-school, I just heard on the radio that it might snow again tomorrow. Such is gardening. Go figure!
Thanks for all of the kind words regarding my little post over at Simple Organic talking about how to repurpose some household items to begin your vegetable garden. Katie just posted an awesome follow up piece talking about which gardening method is best for you, raised beds, container or traditional beds. I think I am going to like hanging out over there. Those chics are cool.
