springs here

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 

All the snow is finally off the garden, so I took a quick walk around today to evaluate things. Surprisingly, the soil is dry enough in most spots that it can be worked, which I didn't expect in light of the fact that there was still snow on it as little as 3 days ago.

Decided to pull back the mulch from a small area of the garlic bed to see what was up under it, and I was pleased to find this:


The sprouts from the bulbs are about as perfect as I could ask for this time of year, and judging from just the small area I pulled back, looks like 100% sprout. 

This is just two or so plants of about a half a dozen of spinach out there that over-wintered..




And just one patch of three that I have of sorrel (sourgrass)...



So hopefully i can get some other issues squared away soon and get out there within a few days to start turning beds for peas and spinach.....nothing like sinking the pitchfork into the ground for the first time each year.

Good grief, get out of there. That region is most definitely not fit for human habitation ;)

That's spring: Cherry blossom. Planted lots of herbs today, also some new berry bushes
