For everyone who poo-pooed me on planting early, all I can say this year is I GOT LUCKY! This is the best stand of carrots I’ve ever had thus far! I am dreaming of carrot soup, glazed carrots, carrot cake and so on and so forth!
These raspberries were just planted last year, and are obviously prolific little buggers. Raspberry jam anyone?
My garlic is growing great guns too, even if my girls beat the hell out of them early on! I really didn’t think they would make it, but they look good so far! I am SO excited for fresh garlic, although I’m still using last years!
The spinach has not missed a beat and I have been happily eating it for a few weeks now. I greedily take bags with on the truck for salads and on sandwiches. And oh, my oh my, how fresh spinach scrambled with a couple fresh eggs from the girls make me so happy in the morning!
And my beets are just starting, but they have yet to be ate by the rabbits… hopefully I didn’t just jinx myself! I enlisted Hubs to throw some chicken wire over them tonight, so hopefully they will be up and running in no time!
How does your garden grow?
