Sean, you are becoming that farmer, the one that will provide food to people, yeah!!! I know that you will have wonderful luck when you go to sell some of your excess veggies this year. When I hear the stories about people and their food crops coming on, I just get so excited. I can't wait for the summertime and the bounties that the fresh gardens bring. I have began a few early things, like lettuce....that may sound strange, but I like to get a bit of a jump on the lettuce by starting it indoors and setting the plants out. Then I can get that succession sowing of lettuce to keep the lettuces young and lovely. I will be starting more soon, like broccoli. I have lots of leeks that are about 3 weeks old now. The leeks that I have still growing in the garden are not fairing that well, I think that they may have a lack of fertilizer, although I don't know how. I will let them go to seed for the bees to gather nectar from, they are not really worth much of a harvest for food, I may pick a few.
I am expecting to see asparagus coming up really soon, but as of the day before yesterday, haven't seen them yet. They are very late. We had such an unusually cold winter that things are really set back. I am now feeling like I need to mow my lawn, that is over 2 weeks late. By the first of April I normally would have already mowed. Oh, summertime, summertime, oh, summer, summertime!!! Have the best of this great, beautiful day. Cindi
