Planted today in the main bed an assortment of early crops just ahead of the rains coming this week:

  • Peas
  • Carrots
  • Swiss Chard
  • Radishes
  • Turnips
  • Spinach
  • Lettuce

Meanwhile, the asparagus tips are poking up and we are excited because this is the first year we get to harvest them. Good old rhubarb, herbs, berries, and other perennials are embracing the early warm weather and growing like crazy.

And indoors we are trying our hand at starting seeds for the favorite summer crops: tomatoes, peppers, basil, and (a new one) ground cherries.

Each year I hold my breath disbelieving that anything will grow. The plants and seeds ignore my lack of faith and my low self-esteem as a gardener and give us so many great things to eat. Good thing they are in charge.
