I Love Springtime in the Garden!

I have been in the garden every day since January 29. My goal is to have something edible growing in my garden every day. Weeds don't count.

The weather has been cool and comfortable to work in without a jacket. I wish I had a camera to take pictures of everything that has been done this spring around here, but unfortunately I will not have a camera until the middle of April. I don't think the vegetables will mind not having their pictures taken until then.

So much as been done in preparing and planting this spring. Two new in-ground beds have been prepared and one new raised bed was built. That makes a total of six garden beds with a combined total of 241 square feet. Five of them are completely full of spring vegetables. Help! I need more garden beds!

Throughout February I have planted outside snow peas, garden peas, carrots, turnips, radishes, red potatoes, yukon potatoes, garlic, chives, scallions, and onions.

Started inside are tomatoes, bell peppers, parsley, cilantro, lettuce, sweet william, and mixed wildflowers.

I was fortunate enough to receive 20 free knockout roses. They have been pruned and put in a holding bed until I can prepare the fence row for them.

The work in the garden is never done. Thank you to everyone that helps me.

  1. This weather has been devine and I'm loving that Spring is finally here. We have a ton of knockout roses in our yard and they grow like weeds! They're absolutely stunning when they bloom though - so it's worth it.
