Well, the garden is looking pretty good for April. Here’s what we have in the ground: white onions, garlic, strawberries, carrots, chives, cilantro, lettuce, rutabaga, radishes, turnips, beets, asparagus, peppermint, red onions and a few bean plants.
Some are perennial, some are new to the garden and the rest were planted within the last few weeks. I am very happy with the peppermint bed. We started with one itsy plant last year and it is spreading nicely. The soil was not really tended to as well as some of the other beds and we were just hoping for the best. Well, we are going to have plenty for some great iced tea, homemade mint oil and desserts. We’ll dry some too.
Thought I’d re-share another gardening tip since I just used it this weekend again. Cut up bath tissue or paper towel rolls into inch-wide circles. Put the circles directly into the garden bed and fill with soil. Plant seeds only inside the circles, then you can mulch outside of the circles, or simply know that anything growing outside the circles are weeds and can be pulled.
There is still so very much to do, but I’m liking the progress so far. I’m hoping to have some peas and beans in this week before we leave for a mini-vacation over the weekend. So much to do, so little time. 🙂
