Day in the Garden
All of my seeds just popped out of the ground into little seedlings. I'm so excited! Our garden is bigger than last year as we added a 10x10 plot in addition to the 5 raised beds and pots we had from last year. Let's see if I can remember everything I've planted: kale, lettuce, carrots, leeks, beets, swiss chard, more kale, pole beans, bush beans, lemon cukes, slicing cukes, butternut squash, green & white squash, raspberries, tomatoes, basil, fennel, cilantro, oregano, chives oh and KALE, did I mention that?? I love kale. Why didn't I find you sooner?? Sauteed with a little olive oil and garlic...ummmmm...I could eat you every night. In addition to all my new plants I have rhubarb, strawberries and blueberries from last year and our pear tree is loaded so I'm hoping for more than the ONE pear we got last year. We have a few more trees that got planted last year that the deer decided were theirs. So I'm hoping this year we get some fencing up around them before the deer remember they are there! I'll leave you with some pictures I took today so you can see for yourself!
