This has been an uncommonly warm winter. We ended the fall with some cold weather, but once solstice hit, the weather has been warm and very wet. A couple of lovely warm, dry periods in February has brought out buds and the garlic has jumped up to almost 6″ already.
Last weekend , we picked up some kale, spinach and broccoli starts from the farm store ($2.39 per 6-pack), a new rhubarb plant, and three bales of pine shavings for the blueberry bed. The veg gardens had begun…..
This week we added a Culinary Bay ($12.99), Mint, Oregano, Sage ($1.99 each), a couple of artichokes ($1.88) Pak Joi, and Rainbow Chard ($2.39 each) to the gardens. I also picked up a packet of Nasturtium seeds ($0.79) another of Dill ($0.79) to plant a little later.
