|These are my four garden boxes.|
|Here is a page from my garden journal.|
I made plans for the vegetable garden. I'll plant spinach, kale, carrots, and arugula tomorrow. In a week or two, I'll add peas, lettuce, radishes, onions, chard, sage, dill and rosemary.
In mid-April I'll add basil, cilantro, cabbage, broccoli and cauliflower.
On Mothers' Day I'll add peppers, tomatoes and pole beans.
In July, beets will replace the peas.
It's not so overwhelming if it's broken up into small chunks like this!
I can already taste the fresh garden salads we'll be having this summer!
And I'm prepared for the weeks of worry once I get seeds in the ground:
"Will they make it?"
"Is it too cold tonight for them?"
"Is there enough moisture for them? Should I turn the hose on for a few minutes?"
|After I removed the slash from last season's harvest, I found many scallions!|
|With a little digging, I found this small worm. Ahh! It's truly spring!|
|A little more digging gets me a bigger worm.|
|And in the compost pile: the BIGGEST worm!|
The thing I noticed about worms in March is that they don't move! They would have remained basking in the sun, posing for many more photos, and gradually drying up if I hadn't buried them.
|Look at the March harvest!|
Last year I was harvesting spinach in February.
What I love about gardening is that it has so many surprises!
