The garden is for all of us, but is especially beloved by Red Chief. Here he is looking at the carrots.
All the types of seeds I planted came up, even the ones that were eight years old. Radishes, kale, swiss chard, kohlrabi, broccoli, lettuce, beets, cilantro, parsley. I planted the seeds early, but I heard that they would wait to sprout until it was time, and they did.
The peas are doing especially well.
The rhubarb and yarrow we planted last year are happy despite not having been watered yet this spring. It looks like I'm going to have to move one of them!
The mint is coming back too.
I'm so glad we built the garden boxes last year, and I'm grateful to have a garden that's so easy to take care of. I love walking around the boxes to see what has come up, and pulling out a weed here or thinning a row there.
