Remember this? Yesterday I had my first lettuce out of the cold frame that I planted at the end of October (after growing from seeds starting in September, I think). All of the green lettuce died during the winter, but the red salad bowl all made it, beautiful and tasty.
There are two leeks getting bigger everyday in there, and one broccoli plant that I didn’t think was going to make it because something chewed on it last fall before the freezing weather. It seems to be sprouting new leaves now, so I’m hopeful that we may have some early broccoli from it. (Someday, Al, I’ll utilize more fully as you do! Or take better care of it….)
Meanwhile some of my seedlings are desperately awaiting our drip irrigation lines to be laid in the garden beds so they can be plants. Even though there isn’t much in the back garden right now, I’m out there every day pulling weeds and just walking through the paths dreaming and feeling peace. It is one of my special outdoor places. When I step into the garden area it is like I’m in another world. Be prepared to follow some of the garden journey for this year!
