|Cabbage - I think. I found it in the compost pile. I planted seeds last year and they never came up until now.|
|New growth on the mint|
|Uhh.... Hydrangea? We've planted so many bulbs I'm not sure which is which.|
|Blueberry, with new buds and leaves.|
|The seed leaves of the collard greens.|
Just a little bit of what's been coming up around here.
We finally have sunshine again after the storm at the beginning of the week. It is supposed to warm up again and get into the 70's next week. I'm very excited for that. I'm really tired of being cold.
The garden, while things are growing, is quite pitiful. All but one of my radish sprouts have been munched by slugs/snails, and most of the spinach has too. The peas are pathetic, the leeks are puny, and the carrots haven't gotten any bigger around than a pencil. I'm sure part of the problem is because I planted the leeks, carrots and peas last fall and they had to overwinter. I think I might just rip out everything in the beds, prepare everything with the GROW BIOINTENSIVE methods, and try again. I can't tell if it's our abysmal dirt, or just the weather. Since these are all cool weather crops, I'm thinking it's the dirt that needs some TLC. Let the experiments begin!
