"This Week In The Garden" is a post you'll see often as the gardening season progresses. This time of year, there isn't much to report, but I'm very happy to say that I was able to get out digging in the earth today!
This week, warmer temperatures and a bit of sunshine woke my chives:
And also woke someone else...
I put Mr. Worm back to bed and added some lettuce seeds with a few encouraging words in the hopes that they will be happy in the newly thawed earth. Lettuces and many other leafy greens, radishes & peas seem to do really well for me when planted in early Spring. I garden in raised beds because they warm earlier and I'm always so eager to plant anything at all by this time of year. The cold weather crops are a Winter-weary girl's best friend!
Lunch today, was courtesy of those early Spring greens, Chive and Chickweed and also courtesy of my friend's chickens who provided eggs - fresh potato salad. The only downside is that there were no more potatoes from last year's crop, so store-bought potatoes were begrudgingly used. It tasted like Spring and Summer - green and fresh.
I hope that Winter is loosening its hold on you and that you find a bit of Spring, wherever you are.
