The Spring Garden Takes Shape

Corey, Baby and I beat feet over to Staunton yesterday morning for a visit and a walk through their farmers' market. They had just what I needed these days - starter plants for the vegetable and herb garden. Then, I snuck out to the garden today - for a quick 15 minutes - and got all seven plants in their proper spots. And the first row of radishes sown.

Simpson Elite Lettuce
Another unknown lettuce variety
Swiss Chard
Thyme
Chives
Italian Curly Parsley
Apple Mint

Phew. And now? I nap.

It sounds as though you've bounced right back after having 'Bug'! Don't wear yourself out though...napping, good; tired, bad.

Good for you! This weekend was glorious for trip-taking and plant-planting. Can't wait to hear about the harvest.

Congratulations Tracey! Will be tuning in full time again to see how you'll inspire my gardening this year.

Just got some flower seeds last week and going to plan my little Brooklyn window box garden this week. maybe put some things in soil next week.

Stay well and take it easy--what an exciting garden it will be this year for you with a a new little inspiration!
