Lettuce is up in the barrels, as are a few beets and some other stuff...can't seem to remember exactly what I put in there one cold day..oh well, I will figure it out when it comes up.
The tarda tulips my Canadian friend gave me last year are blooming eagerly. They are simply delightful and I think of her whenever I see them.
Liz's BF did both gardens with a big Troy Built horse rototiller yesterday. The soil is beautiful, smooth and dark and rich. I planted a few radishes and beets this morning just because I could. I used Pinetree garden seeds mixtures as I love surprises...or at least garden surprises...and trying new varieties.
I am scaling back tomatoes this year though. After last year's blight I am gun shy. We planted 52 tomato plants and only ended up with a dozen or so fruits because of the blight. This year I will plant in barrels and just really nurture what I do grow...rather than going for a large volume.
Anyhow, back to planting, and writing this garden blog after a long winter hiatus.
