With that, I am going to simplify things a bit, and give weekly updates a try. No hard and fast rules here, if I get excited about something you'll know it.
Here is our garden this week. Peas sprouted, garlic well on its way, onions, and potatoes just planted. This is the best year for asparagus I've had in a while. It's a shame I left some of it in the ground thinking one more day to grow would be a good thing during a 26 degree night. Little ones so contented with freshly tilled earth, that it's a shame we have to plant it at all. Better to keep small hands busy with our vast collection of dump trucks than pushing each other out of trees, and tipping over egg cartons out of pure curiosity (again, wish I were kidding).
have finally gotten a community garden plot in the city. Three years of patient waiting for my name to come up on the list, and I am now the proud borrower of 64 square feet of inconveniently located Philadelphia real estate. Seems like a trifling nuisance after the muscle sculpting work of getting the farm garden into shape, but I am happy to have it to satisfy my 4 season gardening curiosity. I plan to focus on cool weather crops like greens, and roots, that are difficult to time with school year visits to the farm. It may pop up here from time to time.
