Our little seedlings are not ready for big world of the garden. So the past several days, my three little helpers and I have been planting away.
Some of what we planted early on and a few things that survived the winter, like the cilantro and kale, are now shooting up and going to seed.
We are trying our hands at some new things this year. We're growing potatoes in pots. I've never been able to grow potatoes before because of limited space, but this (so far) is working perfectly. Looks like it is time to add another layer of soil to these.
The onions planted several weeks earlier, are off to a great start.
Last Fall I started a new herb bed along the back side of the house next to some slate pavers we found via freecycle. The newspaper has been down all winter to kill the grass and weeks underneath and it was finally time to plant. The new bed holds bee balm, rosemary, mint, thyme, basil and strawberries.
Despite several new beds, why does there never seem to be enough room to plan everything you want to?
