2012 Garden

The gardening has begun.  The amazing temperatures this winter and spring allowed for early planting but we are on the same schedule as any other year so far.  We carry buckets of water to water the garden and don't usually have to do much of that in the spring, until this year.  So the last couple days of rain have been welcomed for sure.  So far we have planted about 1/2 the garden and are gearing up for the warm weather plants.

So far there are strawberries, potatoes, cabbage, kale, swiss chard, shallots, onions, leeks, turnips, beets, and garlic.

I frequently dream about and crave raw kale salad and kale chips so I am super excited to pick it from my own garden and make these when the kale is still warm from the sun.

I don't however dream about pulling the weeds that all this lovely rain is helping grow...

More to come.

I wish you enough!
