Alright, alright. We didn't go crazy like the folks snatching up tomatoes and peppers. We went to Lowes to buy yard bags...and they were out. So we decided to take a quick look around and found some pansies and violas, and also decided we could tempt the Fates and buy a few things to plant in the Kitchen Garden. Today. April First. Maybe we were fools, we'll just have to wait and see.
|We bought four broccoli plants.|
|This is another broccoli, but it should be a picture of one of the Brussels sprouts we planted. I don't know what happened to them...|
|A few little Romaine starts. I also put in a largish patch of mesclun on the "shady" side of the garden.|
|One of the six little "45 Day" cabbage plants. The tag says they form a smaller head, but 45 days to harvest! I'll take it!|
|I grabbed the bag of calendula seeds saved from last Fall (as well as what was left of the bag from 2010) and sowed them along the edges of two beds. I think I may also edge the path in the extension with them this year. Maybe.|
|Grow, baby, grow!|
|Last week's row of cilantro is up, too! I really do wonder what April has in store for us. There are buds on some of the peonies, for crying out loud! I am nervous and excited all at once.|
