Happy Earth Day!

Lilac starting to bud!

Happy Earth Day! After the long, cold, snowy winter we've had it was nice to get back in to the garden and see signs of life returning. The perennial bed is coming back full force as is the  oregano. The kale that overwintered looks great! We were able to take some compost from the bins and top dress one of the beds so far. In it we planted some more kale, lettuce and peas. The garlic we put in last fall is about 6 inches tall already! 

Here comes the garlic!

Our first Garden Club of the season will be held Tuesday April 28 at 3:15. We will be discussing garden protocol, cleaning out the remaining beds, adding compost to the raised vegetable beds and planting some more greens. There will also be a "surprise visitor".
