The weather on Sunday was warm and sunny. It was a perfect day to play in the garden.
Even the critters were getting into the action.
But there was a lot of work to be done. It is time to plant a new batch of crops. We were excited to harvest some of our winter crops and make room for the vegetables of spring and summer.
We started by digging up our lettuce so we could share them with our friends and neighbors. We decided to plant rows of corn in it’s place. We also added a few asparagus plants in the same section as well. Two of our favorite vegetables!
In the back of our plot we planted a few potatoes, green beans, sweet peas and cucumbers.
We still haven’t seen a huge harvest from our initial strawberry planting, so we decided to add a few more plants to see if it would spark some action.
Finally, we added some shallots and chives to the mix as well. We are still tending to our carrots, celery, onions, Brussels, and parsley which are all thriving. We had to say goodbye to our broccoli plant as the weather has been a little too warm and as a result it decided to bloom flowers instead of a head. Oh well, 8 out of 9 ain’t bad :).
We introduced some worms to our compost bin and are looking forward to the benefits of their hard work.
This experience continues to be enjoyable. A LOT of hard work, but very fun. Harper is having a blast too. Her favorite part is hanging out in the wheel barrel. She also digs a mean hole with that orange shovel. Don’t let those little hands fool you. She takes her job very seriously :)
And even after all of that, we are still not done. Stay tuned for the next installment. I see some more delicious veggies in our future :)
