Today is the first day the weather has tempted me outside, in the 60’s and minus the strong south wind that’s been blowing for the past week. I walked out to the garden to see what was waiting for me.
My husband outdid himself with this first of his retirement gifts. I have five raised beds fenced in against rabbit and deer, with water close by.
I checked the asparagus. Nothing has changed since the winter clean-up.
And everything looks like it could use the snow that’s been predicted for Saturday.
In older, more established areas, the garden is starting to green up. Ground cover is popping up here and there.
And the daffodils I planted last fall have started to push through the ground.
So we’re not quite set, but ready. My ten kale and romaine live and thrive, ready for hardening. I’m ready to get down the box of seeds and finalize what will go where. I bought a fifth packet of broccoli seeds, and I feel ready to see if I can get something to germinate.
