gardening: commence!

We’ve had a week or so of cold, crummy, wet weather, but weather.com says it’s over…and I’m ready to gamble that we’re done with frost!

What’s in the garden so far:

* the strawberries Mary planted last year–they’re popping out and looking springy.

* lettuce.

* radishes

* carrots

* peas and leeks, neither of which have germinated yet; I hope they are going to do SOMEthing.

* Brussels sprouts, which weathered the cold week just fine.

 

I’m excited to put in a few more things this coming week, including some herbs in our big porch planter. The kids love having something planted there to water with the watering can!

  1. I planted about a week ago (lettuce, herbs, and some flowers). Then we had a bunch of stupidly cold weather. I am not pleased.
