This past spring, I planted a few beds of beet seeds, using them only for the greens, and am still being supplied with lots of beautiful growth. I just came in with a couple bags, one of nice babyish leaves...looking forward to that salad shortly, and the other with the larger leaves for a quick garlicy sauté. Also picked some young dandelion leaves from a volunteer plant gifted me within the fenced garden.

We’ve been waiting for the weather and winds to calm down to get a few large grow bags moved. I did a walk around last week just to look at the perennials that have some green still showing (Sweet William, Shasta Daisy, Foxglove and a few more).
Such a beautiful day out. Spent time in the garden. Found horseradish, Columbine, lilies, daffodils, Black Eyed Susan,iris and of course the ever present creeping charlie coming up. The hollyhocks are green and some parsley made it thru the winter too. A lot of small branches from the River Birch are everywhere because of the winds we had last week. Honey bees were even buzzing me. One hive out of four survived the winter. Our beekeeper is coming out tomorrow.
