My Garden is Alive!!!
Spring is here and things are growing in my garden. I am still working on getting all my raised beds ready, but my spring vegetable crops are growing nicely. So far I have planted broccoli, cabbage, spinach, carrots, turnips, snow peas, onions and beets. The garlic, shallots and elephant garlic that I planted in October is growing nicely. I am very excited that my purple asparagus is also starting to sprout. This will be my first year that I will be able to harvest the asparagus! I plan on planting the rest of my spring vegetables this weekend. I still want to plant swiss chard, asparagus peas, lettuce, pac choi and more carrots. Along with the spring vegetables, I also have spring flowers coming up all over. I noticed last weekend that I may have Barn Swallows occupying one of my bird houses! They have beautiful metallic blue feathers. Here are some pictures of my spring veggies and flowers.
