Spring Gardening

Now that is mid-spring, rhododendrons and other woody shrubs are in full bloom and it is time to get our gardens in order.

At one end of our raised bed, the winter lettuce is salad-ready and the snap peas are flowering.

We tilled the other end, pulled out the bolting arugula, and planted a few tomato starts. We are also trying to grow a few different veggies from seed this year such as beets, carrots, and dill.

To save room for other plants in the bed, we planted two more tomato starts in containers.

Your peas and lettuce look about like mine. I have been eating lettuce for a while now. The peas haven't started blooming yet, but I bet it won't be long! I got 6 tomatoes planted and they are growing quickly.
