Signs of spring and garden treasures revealed
Yesterday was glorious. The sky was blue and it was warm with not even a breeze. It was just a joy to be outside. I was able to get a lot of spring clean up done in the garden and the best part was seeing signs of life. After such a long, long, miserable winter, yesterday was a gift.
In fact, more treasures awaited for me under the winter leaves and inches of pine needles (thank you pine tree). I found two carrots I had missed when I dug up the bed in the fall, strawberry plants that survived being transplanted in November, chives, garlic and spinach! I laughed out loud when I saw the spinach. Here I am, babying spinach indoors, trying to get it to grow, unsuccessfully I might add, when Mother Nature keeps it alive outside under blankets of snow. Once again, I bow to Her superiority.
On the agenda today is amending the horrible soil in the new bed I created on the side of the house and planting peas and lettuce.
What are you doing in your garden today?
