Urban Farming: Getting the spring garden going

We have lots going on in the garden this spring. The romaine, red leaf and green leaf lettuces I thought for sure were frozen to death during the winter came back beautifully and we’ve been munching on salad from the garden for a few weeks now.

We also have a couple rows of English peas coming up.

And I’m really happy that the parsley made it through the winter, too.

We’re trying a new vegetable this year: celery! They’re little babies right now – Dan started them from seed in the sunroom.

We have lots more to come – several kinds of tomatoes, hot and bell peppers, and purple tomatillos are growing from seeds in the sunroom, and we’re going to try Brussels sprouts again, too. Should be a fun summer!
