Yesterday I was out watering the garden, twice since it was fairly warm. I swear, I could watch the asparagus shoot up out of the ground. Our asparagus bed came established with the house when we bought it 4 years ago and has always done really well. This year, once I got all the grass off the top, is no exception!
My spinach is doing well. Round 1 is getting it's third set of leaves in, Round 2 is on its first leaves and Round 3 is just starting to poke up out of the ground. I need to get my last planting in this weekend.
I planted little gem lettuce - they're supposed to be cute little 5 inch heads of lettuce perfect for a single salad. These little guys are just sprouting their leaves.
The rhubarb continues to flourish and the strawberries are beginning to blossom. We are going to have to get in gear to get them protected!
My peas have finally decided to grow a little bit - they're starting to stretch for their trellis.
Last but not least, the broccoli. I have tiny heads of broccoli forming already! Some of the plants I had given up on after the Garden Beast attack are actually doing relatively well and may bring me produce after all! Yesterday when I went out I saw beautiful little broccoli crowns forming:
Today I saw that some Beast had a snack last night! Grrrr! At least they limited their party to two of my plants!
The weather has been great this week: the perfect mix of rain and sunshine. I'm antsy to plant my post-frost-date crops but will hold out. Our nights have a tendency to stay cool for a little while longer.
