Finally! A whole weekend that promised spring around the corner. I ordered seeds, and now that I look at the list, I’m wondering where they’ll all go, but I’ll worry about that later. I also ordered a 4’ x 4’ cover for vegetables the rabbit will nibble. If it works, I may order more.
Today I went to the garden and bagged the trimmings from the roses and the trumpet vine that I had left a couple weeks ago. Then I did some minor weeding and cultivated the soil. It looks good, loose and black. I noted the things that had survived the winter—parsley and garlic. Then I planted some potatoes. I know nothing about growing potatoes, so I’ll have to read up on that as they grow.
I don’t have my cover for the tender vegetables the rabbit likes yet, so I sewed radishes and beets in the bean enclosure, where they’ll be safe. Then I experimented with a row of carrots next to a row of onion seeds. I have heard that the rabbits don’t like onions and garlic, so I’ll be seeing if they’re discouraged.
