I have had a lot on my plate lately and it shows in my neglected garden. With spring breaking out, I thought I would go out and start preparing for planting. I was in for a happy surprise. I let last year’s vegetable garden go to seed. When I cleaned off frost bitten stalks, I found a new salad garden had planted itself. What more could a busy and lazy gardener want?
So far the following have come up an their own: curly leaf lettuce, radicchio, beets, carrots, fenugreek, and peas. Kale stalks survived the winter, and some are starting to leaf out.
I guess all I have left to do, is tuck a few seeds into the bare spots and watch for irrigation needs. Not bad. Now back inside for that list of photovoltaics homework……..
