Garlic, leeks, and kale overwintered in the garden and are now greening up.
One week ago today, I planted seeds in our raised beds to begin several first crops of the season--peas, lettuce, arugula, carrots, and green onions. The arugula is sprouting up already. There is a lot of work yet to be done to get the rest of the ground ready, as you can see from the picture of our weedy and wind-blown field garden area.
Today Mom and I went out and purchased more seeds to get in the ground: beets and spinach immediately, and others for May planting. It was a beautiful spring afternoon. After supper I went outside to get a few shots to show you a glimpse of April at Mountain Musings.
