Earth Day already here, and my garden is barely getting going. It is off to a really slow
start this spring because of the cold weather. Tried to plant in mid March, as I
usually do, but the ground was still frozen. The last week of March we were still
getting snow, so I waited until April to get things in and then covered the beds up.
Now the radishes, carrots, spinach, green snow peas, and onions are coming up,
but we discovered that the wind had blown off the grow covers on two of the beds
last week. Pulled the metal pins right out of the soil and sailed them down to the
woods! Thus some of my little plants got burned by the 23 degree temperatures last
Wednesday morning. Not a happy camper about that. I am hoping they will still
come back out with time and sunshine. So glad it is finally looking like spring will stay
for a while here. Everything is so pretty with the flowers blooming. I took some pictures
of the redbud tree, just as it was starting to open last week I wanted to share.
