This week is my favorite when it comes to gardening. The soil is fresh, perennials are emerging and the worst weeds are crab grass and dandelions. For the first time in years, the spinach and peas are both in the ground and sprouting. Inside tomatoes, peppers, eggplant, herbs, zinnias are showing their second leaves and beginning to look like real plants. Anything is possible and my head is full of big ideas!
The challenges are coming. Along with the hosta, the weeds are beginning to pop out. The three spearmint nursed through the winter need a home sequestered from anyone else but safe from the weedeater. Luna has already helped by digging in the compost and spreading it across the lawn. Rob demonstrated the new power trimmer turning our front bushes into stick sculptures.
Let the fun begin!
