Dinner is in the oven and the veggies are ready to steam, so I have some time to tell you about the garden. Puwen Lee dropped by last week and planted a Plot Against Hunger sign, since I had emailed her that I needed one. The old one must have blown away, or been carried off for mysterious reasons.
I wanted to see the sign and had a little time to check on the gardens. There were a few weeds. In the large, outside garden, the sedge grass has not given up. However, I’ve got some new volunteers in my back pocket, and some returning volunteers who are willing to engage in a fight with it. Some seeds are still snug in their rows. Others are coming up. One row of carrots in the large garden is sprouting. Mostly it’s lettuces and spinach coming up.
In my own garden, the radishes have sprouted, along with the lettuces and arugula.
And the garlic, which has hung out all winter, is really coming into its own.
For the seeds that haven’t sprouted yet, I’ll be back next weekend. Happy Easter and happy spring!
