This has been a lovely Spring for gardening. I have a lot more established plants than last year, and so this year have not had to spend very much money on anything (which hubby likes a lot). I need a composter bad – compost is likely the only soil material I’ll need to buy this season, and it seems like such a waste with all the green/brown matter we throw away anyways! One day.
The rasied bed is doing great. I was very optimistic when I put it in in February, but just harvested the first handful of radishes yesterday – so far, so good! I set up a previously purchased twine trellis for the peas to grow up and they are currently flowering and happy.
I have Flat leaf Parsley and Rainbow Swiss Chard in pots that are about to flower – I’m trying to save their seeds for later plantings.
The seedlings for summer crops are doing well under the grow light, with plans of them being planted out around Mother’s Day.
big tomatoes, peppers, tomatillos etc
