My mom has been in town this week, helping me get my garden in shape for the growing season. There has been weeding, churning, mowing, raking, digging, and sowing. I am so excited and thankful for the progress that has been made. There are seeds in the ground! Seeds that will hopefully turn into delicious food for our family: spinach, kale, romaine, red lettuce, peas, carrots, and beets. This is a first for me (aside from the occasional container tomato), and I’m sure there’s a lot more to learn. For now I’m basking in the spring sun and checking my plantings regularly, looking for signs of growth. PB has been a big help, too. She loves climbing up into those raised beds and digging around. I think it’s great, but I am a little worried she’s going to eat a slug or two this summer…or maybe she’ll raid the herb garden instead.
