The red romaine we planted in February is sprouting nicely, will require intense thinning, always hard for me, I feel bad about pulling up those babies but know that they will do much better if properly spaced. There are also quite a number of radishes but no other lettuces showing up as yet. We got in quite a few rows of spinach in the same raised bed as the lettuce with space for two rows of yellow carrots at the end. Expecting rain on Tuesday so hopefully that will plus some sun will bring up more seedlings.
Erin and Anah are coming today to help with planting taters and onions. No sign of the peas yet, but the ground is still pretty chilly so it make take them a while to come up. Always feels good to get the veggies going.
The last of the crocus are blooming now. The early ones have all passed, there are few yellows left and the purples are outstanding this year. I found some alliums that are up while looking around yesterday. They are my favorite of the bulbs, a few daffodils are blooming and many more are sticking their leaves out of the ground. Oh, and the hyacinths look as if they will put on a good show too this year.
So, yep I guess it's Spring. Gee I just cast on a sweater, as always I'm a bit late in some endeavors. I did manage 15 minutes on the trail in the park yesterday. My walking had not been happening as the weather had turned cold again.
I appreciate all the work my husband does in the yard and garden.
I am grateful that I can still walk and that the work I did outside yesterday did not upset my back.
I appreciate Spring with it's super energy and balmy breezes.
Let's all think Spring thoughts.. it's got to help :)
