 This years garden has been doing really well so far! We were able to get a nice early start and we have had some very beautiful spring weather. Some of the things we had intended for fall crops last year survived the winter and got a jump start on the cool weather of spring. Because of this I was able to harvest our first head of cabbage yesterday! Not only was it the first head this year, it was the first head I have ever successfully grown! I know cabbage is supposed to be easy to grow, but somehow I failed 4 years in a row!   

    I have also always failed with onions. So much so, in fact, that Jonathan asked me why I was planting them this year! But look at them! I am so excited, they are doing so much better. I read online that each leaf shoot represents a ring of onion being developed. Interesting! I also read that one should NOT pull the weeds around their onions. This was a fascinating thought for me. They said I should cut the weeds off at the ground instead of pulling them. This leaves the tender roots of the union bulbs as undisturbed as possible. Makes sense!!! 

   
I am trying to grow lots of flowers in my garden this year. Partly because I like them and they are pretty, partly because I can’t grow them near the house or the deer will eat them, and partly to attract bees. I am growing some unique heirloom varieties and am excited to see what they look like in bloom doesn’t look like I have to wait too much longer! 

And then here are some random pictures around the garden. Enjoy!

    Your garden looks awesome! I’m just doing one small bed this year, since tending to it is not the most comfortable thing at 7.5 months pregnant!

    Hi Mikaela! Thanks. 🙂 I can’t blame you, even I get a belly ache sometimes from all the bending over! Hope you are well!
