Saturday was such a beautiful day. High 60s, sunny, the perfect day to get back in the garden! I had on my new garden wellies, sun hat, and a TANK TOP!!
The garden looked much different this time around. The snow is gone! (At least for now).
We opened the doors of the coldframe to let the sun directly hit the spinach. It’s coming back!
Some more baby spinach is starting to appear.
I planted the rest of the cold frame with more spinach. Spinach can be planted as soon as the ground can be worked, even if it’s cold.
We turned over some dirt in the new part of our plot. There’s still so much to do.
We planted some more garlic. We have close to 40 planted now! Whew! It looks like about half of the garlic we planted last fall didn’t make it through the winter. Some did, however.
In the older part of the garden, the wheat we planted last fall is just starting to come up.
Back at home, K has finished our seed stand.
It’s time to start the broccoli!
The broccoli is going under the lights for 14 hours a day until it comes up. Broccoli is a brassica that does fairly well in cooler weather, so although I won’t just plant it out in the garden just yet, I’m going to start some seedlings.
Next week, more seedlings!
