“The beautiful spring came; and when Nature resumes her loveliness, the human soul is apt to revive also.”
–Harriet Ann Jacobs
Spring has been a breath of fresh air. This winter was a little harder than others with unusually long cold temps, some life changes, and busy-ness. Needless to say, spring has been a very welcomed sight.
At the beginning of the month I pulled up most of what was left of my winter garden. The broccoli, cauliflower, brussels, cabbage and bolted greens got tossed into the compost bin with absolutely no regrets. It was almost like I couldn’t do it fast enough.
But I had to wait a little longer than other years to get my spring plants in the garden, mainly because the cold temps just didn’t want to go away. The past couple of weeks have been all about getting the beds cleaned up and the new transplants in the ground. There are still a few more fall veggies, mainly carrots, that are waiting to be harvested but for the most part all things are new.
Tomatoes, peppers, cucumbers, ground cherries, and lots of herbs are already growing and changing every day. And lots of blooms already! Such a pretty sight of things to come.
