Vegetable Garden 2013 - Update 2

Spring Sun

What a gorgeous end to the month of March! And so different from the endless wet gray days. The sun arrived and brought warmth - up to mid-60's. I hope that way do not have to pay for this gorgeous week.

We got a little gardening done. The Nevada lettuce has not sprouted. The seed is several years old and may not be viable. So we bought a pack of lettuce starts - $3.00 for 6 large healthy looking green leaf lettuce. That will get a jump start. A few of the red leaf sprouted so we will have a bit more to plant later.

The sugar snap peas are in the ground and already twinning their way up the string. No sign of activity in the potato bins. The greenhouse has several spots of color from our South African bulbs. I love to see them because they remind me of walking the fields in Nieuwoudtville.

Here's this week's activity.
