First Weekend of Spring

We took full advantage of this first weekend of Spring. The weather was beautiful and the snow is almost gone. I cleaned up the two beds I had hoops over for the winter. They were buried in the snow all winter, so the plants in them barely grew. It wasn't worth keeping so few plants, so I pulled the tiny greens up and gave them to a rabbit.

In our seven raised beds, I planted peas (shelling and sugar snap), onions, bunching onions, radishes, turnips, broccoli, cabbage, and beets. I covered all of these beds with row cover to provide some frost protection and insect control. I also made two salad boxes and planted lettuce and asian greens. I didn't get a picture of them yet, but I will soon. I plan to make more a couple more salad boxes this week.

Here is Jorene, Liam and our cat Georgia helping plant some seeds.

Time for a nap. I wonder what this seed will grow up to be?
