Victory Garden


In the last few days, our temperatures have gotten up to the high 50’s and I’ve been taking my seedlings out for some sunlight and throwing open the windows.  It feels so good to have fresh air flowing through the house, and I know the seedlings are appreciating the warm afternoon sun.

I sat outside with my plants today, my collection of seeds, a calendar and journal.  I’ve been thinking about incorporating more flowers into my vegetable garden, both as companion plants and for beauty.  I drew out my plans for the vegetable garden and chose which seeds I’ll plant this coming weekend: Johnny jump-ups, peas, lettuce, cabbage, mache, spinach, broccoli, leeks, and scallions.  I can’t wait to get my hands back in the garden soil.

Some of the raspberries that I ordered arrived today, and since they’re bare root, I need to get them into the soil soon.  Ed and I will plant them tomorrow in the spot we’ve chosen for our berry patch.

What’s going on in your garden?
