I Love My Early Spring Garden

I spend a lot of time out here starting in February and usually giving up in June - when it gets blisteringly hot and I leave the garden to fate. But these early months are the stuff - supremely satisfying in the smaller moments and small steps. Tucking away some lettuce starts, building a rustic trellis for the snap peas, harvesting herbs. Sixty degrees with a breeze and the sun on my back urges me along in my chores. Though truth be told, I don't need much urging these days.

What is growing right now :: Garlic, rhubarb, broccoli, thyme, snap peas, lettuces, borage, chives, oregano, sage, lemon balm, dill, rosemary and parsley.

What is not growing right now :: The evil, relentless, undermining weeds of the South!

It all looks beautiful Tracey! The weather has been perfect for gardening even though we haven't had the rain that we usually have.

It looks lovely. A wonderful sight after a long winter. Seems like a miracle, doesn't it? Well, it is, I guess. :o)
