Spring Planting

Since March came in more like a summer day than a lion, we grabbed our garden plans and vegetable seed packets.

The tiller has been running all week, dirt has been turned and compost has been mixed. Today was the perfect opportunity. Each of our palms were lined with seeds as we broke through the earth to create new beginnings. In our spring bed we sowed sugar snap peas, carrots, a romaine-type lettuce, and a salad mix. This is the earliest we've begun our vegetable garden, but this is also our first attempt at getting in some cool-season crops before the brutal summer sets in. In the coming days and weeks we should have lots of little babies to care for, worry about, and photograph. Stay tuned. Happy March!
