I'm back from a long business trip in Germany. It was cold there. It seems spring was as slow to come there as well as here.
Yesterday, I wanted to get some work done in the garden. I decided to move some soil into one of the new raised beds so I could get the potatoes in. We had snow flakes coming down while I was working. Crazy!
The weather changed overnight, and it was beautiful and warm today. I decided to turn over half the raised beds and put in the cold-tolerant plants.
I put in potatoes and carrots. The garlic I planted last fall is coming in well!
The rhubarb is starting to come in.
We also planted our green beans, snap peas, kale and scallions. I was happy to see the spinach I planted last fall made it through the winter and was coming in nicely. We might have some fresh spinach in a few weeks!
The perennials are sprouting. The daffodils and bleeding hearts are coming in. Some of the hostas are also emerging!
Spring is coming in fast. It is about time!
