Spring Garden Update

Spring gardening is in full swing here.  We’re a few weeks from our last possible frost date, but it’s been so warm we’re thinking about planting a few tender plants.  Inside the greenhouse, our tomato plants are 4 feet high with flowers and tiny tomatoes on them and the hot peppers have started to bloom.  Outside, we’ve got peas, carrots, chard, leeks, and cabbage planted, and our garlic looks fantastic!  That wire hoop structure is just a cattle panel secured between two beds.  The arch is like 7 feet tall so it’s easy to walk under and will provide support for anything that ‘runs’.  Brian and I are constantly surprised that we’ve figured out this food growing thing after lots of failures in our early years.  We learn something new every week.
