Spring Garden

***Note- I had to use Photobucket to upload the pictures today, and they got cropped. Click on each picture to view the un-cropped versions.***

My spring garden is coming up pretty well. I'll admit I have only watered it a few times. I'm so bad at remembering to water, but this spring has been pretty wet (the farmers are getting irritated) so my plants have done well.

Here is a bed with broccoli and spinach. The broccoli already has tiny heads on them, and I'm a little worried they'll peter out before they get nice and big. I don't have much luck growing large heads of broccoli like my mom and sister can. The spinach is doing well. It needs to be thinned, but hopefully soon I can start harvesting!

This is my cauliflower. It's doing pretty well too. Oh, and I forgot to mention all these plants got nibbled down to stems after I planted them, since I thought I wouldn't need a fence. Wrong! Now they're safely tucked behind a nice rabbit fence.

This bed is cabbage and onion sets. I really hope my cabbage does well, because I love purple cabbage in salads and cole slaw. I've also got a new appreciation for white (or green?) cabbage. I like it raw, with ham and potatoes, and I even want to try stuffed cabbage (that I did not like as a kid).

Hopefully soon it will dry out and we can work up the main garden. It is almost time to start planting the "real" garden like green beans and tomatoes!!

I recently came into a new found love with red cabbage too :) I grow other kinds every year with the intention of making sauerkraut with it and never get that far!

Wow! Your plants are getting big! Your cauliflower and broccoli plants are twice the size mine are! That rain has really been good for your garden. We need some here!

I love your garden. I told Becky that it's one of the things I miss. Nothing says spring like seedlings coming up! Great job and I wish you bountiful harvests. Love you, Momma
