The first spring planting --- better late then never
It's almost physically
painful to be forced to stay out of the garden when the weather has
suddenly changed over spring after weeks of anticipation. Unfortunately,
I made the mistake of going in to the doctor's office for a
regular checkup (which I'd been putting off for 7 years) and came home
with a clean bill of health...and a virus. So Mark has ordered bed rest
and I'm doing my best to comply.
My long-suffering husband
did let me up long enough to get the first garden seeds in the ground
at last, a quick project since Kayla and I had already prepared the beds
weeks ago, hoping that the abnormally cold weather would someday break.
Lettuce, arugula, and peas should enjoy this current mild, wet
spell...and planting a month late probably won't make very much
difference in the eventual harvest time. That's the great thing about
spring --- every day gets warmer and sunnier and plants quickly make up
for any lost time.
