Hello Spring! 😀
M and I have been working in the garden today. I’ve been finishing the cleaning up of the asparagus bed while M moves the fence out to expand the garden. We’re hoping this will be a good year for gardening.
We also started some seeds indoors. A variety of sunflowers, mostly. I’ll be starting the peppers soon. I bought seeds for orange and yellow peppers. The rest of the seeds I have will go straight into the ground as soon as it’s dry enough to till/plow the garden. This year I’ll be growing red and green lettuces, romaine lettuce, Swiss chard, and a few different varieties of tomatoes. I’d like to grow some heirloom tomatoes. (Note to self: Remember to look into that!)
There’s no sign of the asparagus popping up yet. I usually miss the first few spears because they tend to blend in with their surroundings.
I’d better get back out there. I came in for a short break. My weary body needed a rest. I’d forgotten how physically demanding gardening can be. Just think of all those calories burned…
