The garden

Our garden is very small. Still, it brings me a very great joy to see the early flowers. Nicole does most of the work in the garden. I buy the plants and she puts them in the ground. It is not such a bad arrangement! Anyway, here are some pictures of our early garden. We have radishes, lettuce, kohlrabi, and garlic. My favorite new flowers are these mini iris'. They are so cute! Nicole is starting a variety of seeds in the green house. I made raised beds from wooden sand boxes last year. These work really well. The soil is perfect, and the ground never gets stepped on. I'll put a fresh coat of varnish on them when it gets warm. I want these beds to last awhile. I can not afford brick raised beds yet.

It is officially spring today. That is a promise, not necessarily a reality , at least not everywhere. The urge to get your hands in the soil and to look upon something green and growing is very strong in our family. There is somehow something almost spiritual in how new plant growth represents new life for us as well. Also enjoy the wonderful home grown produce. When you grow it yourself it always tastes better.
