Seedlings under the glass hot box. I planted tomato and pepper seeds along with Brussels Sprouts, red and green cabbage, a mixture of Japanese greens and lettuce.  I am planning on taking out and replanting all but the greens and lettuce.  Maybe keep them for micro greens - not sure yet.

Weeded the fence line yesterday for a few hours and two more today.  We are finally seeing warm weather and I can't stay away.  It's so peaceful and beautiful at the garden.

Thanks for stopping by.

Garlic and Rye

Rye grass on the top - it's coming in beautifully in rows. Garlic in the middle and a edger I thought was a hand tiller at the bottom.  It works pretty well for the surface. 

I spread out 20 - 40 lb bags of composted manure Saturday.  Barely made a dent but I think tilling it in a little more will help.

Spring Fever

All the snow has melted. I am ready to dig!

I planted Snow pea and Lincoln pea. The Lincoln pea seed is from Annie's Heirloom Seeds in Beaver Island, MI.   

Fresh Spring Peas are one of the joys of early gardening.

 I made a grow box. hopefully it won't flood with the first rain. I tried to pack the dirt around the inner walls but it's a test. Tomatoe, pepper, cabbage, brussel sprouts and a variety of lettuce.

I'm waiting on some compost and warm weather!
