As I have started to prepare the garden space we have for spring plants, I have found more plants than I expected made it through the winter. Between the chickens devouring everything they could get to and winter temperatures getting down below 0ºF, I didn’t expect to find anything. As it turns out, a handful of plants made it through.
I also found a carrot that made it through. Though the root is no longer edible, the plant produced some nice flowers last year that the bugs enjoyed, so I figure I’ll let it grow up this year. Another one of those not-the-best-location things, but I’m not inclined to move that one.
So, that’s the exciting garden news. Lots of plants have been started, but mostly I’m waiting for them to get big enough to put outside. I think I put the kale out a little too soon and it’s struggling to acclimate. Oops. What can I say other than “I’m impatient”?
