The first sprouts of spring!
Remember the row I dug in the early spring weather in January and I planted kale and some broccoli? Then winter came back with snow and freezing rain and wiped out all hope. I checked this morning on the row, now soggy and trammeled by weather and discovered the sprouts had come up! Well some of them had.
The kale has sprouted, but the broccoli still remains unground or maybe rotted. But nonetheless, it was a joy to see seedlings, however pale and tentative coming up in the garden. I covered the edges where weeds were creeping with straw that has overwintered and thus won't sprout it's seeds and be a weed problem itself.
I'm inspired now and it is the first of the month when spring officially arrives. So I'm going to plant some lettuce in the same row and hope for the best.
