It’s snowing again today.
It looks like we’re in for another cool week, but the kitchen garden is finally planted for Spring. Uncovering the kale and arugula, I’ve moved the cloche to help get the new set of seeds growing: carrots, favas, beets, lettuce, radishes. While that little extra bit of warmth will help, it’s keeping the beds dry enough is our major challenge.
A great pleasure this spring has been to see the garden recovering from the Big Snow. It’s only taken a few days to prune broken branches, turn the soil, tidy up the perennials, and scatter some early seeds. Our first crocus bloomed last week, a small patch of color amid budding trees.
Maybe next weekend it will dry up a bit to let us finish the green roof on the rabbit hutch? I’ve got a bunch of strawberries to plant there.
