What’s Growing

Peas are like the squash of spring. I say that because they just grow. And grow. And grow some more. And they grow easy and fast. Every day there is noticeable progress. Yesterday I saw the first blossom, and today there are 5!

The first spinach harvest was a week ago, about a half a pound from the hoop house, and then two days later another half a pound or more from the garden. Just harvested a little bit more today from the hoop house, and could easily have gotten more, but I just wanted a fat handful for dinner. Maybe 12 plants is enough after all. Just should have gotten them started sooner. But I will say that I predicted we would be eating our first harvest by the end of April, and I was close to right.

Also starting to show are the garden broccolis. Sadly all the ones I started from seed died in the garden, but mom insisted on replenishing with starters from the nursery. She’s still trying to make up for the loss of our fall crop to the chickens.
