I never thought I’d see those words again. It always seems like the closer you get to spring, the further away it is. Well folks, I may regret it later, but I think it is finally spring here! I cheat so while most of the county can’t plant seeds in the ground until mid-May, I start my cold weather lovers in the first week of April. I never was one to follow directions. That’s why I hate building IKEA furniture.
Today I planted most of our cold spring crops like: peas, cabbage, leeks, bulb onions, green onions, and lettuce. Tomorrow I will have to tackle the carrots and beets. I realize that it doesn’t sound like much, but keep in mind that I am planting a billion of everything… by hand. It’s hardcore planting. My mad scientist garden tool came in handy today with the dozens of squares I planted
Since I appreciate you guys so much, I took some photos of the different blooms we have surrounding the garden. I also had to take a couple snaps of the peas that came up from a
test first planting two-weeks ago and also of the sunflower seeds I sprinkled in all sorts of secret places around the yard. I like to think of it as guerrilla gardening… with sunflowers. Cheery, bright, and yellow guerrilla gardening warfare.
And as a little added bonus, Cami found this huge toad right outside the garden. So we made up a moist little corner for him inside the garden with a little hole and a wet, upside down terracotta pot to hide under. We are hoping he will stick around and eat the garden’s number one enemy: bugs. Make yourself at home little guy!
