Garden news

WAY up --
Cool-growing vegetables:
  • Lettuce
  • Kale
  • Peas
  • Radishes
  • Mustard greens
  • Spinach
  • Sunflowers
  • Rhubarb
  • Garlic

More vegetables:

  • Beets
  • Parsnips
  • Salsify
  • Dill (re-seeded from last year)
  • Fennel (ditto)

Transplants, in:

  • Broccoli
  • Cabbage

What a thrilling time of year! The grass is green, the trees are budding, we've had several sunny 70 degree days, and the garden is coming along nicely. Still very ugly, of course; but filled with potential. I can hardly wait to walk out back to gather our evening meal. It's gonna be great!

We have big plans for planting this weekend. We even have a friend coming out to help -- she offered and we took her up on it. Prepare to slave, Kate! (Just kidding, of course.) My hope is that it will be a productive weekend in the garden with a pleasant nightcap each evening, loaded meaningful conversation and perhaps a chocolate martini. You never know what "Squeeze the Bartender" has up his sleeve.
