Seeds and seedlings are finding homes in the warm earth of the veggie garden. They’re nestled in rows enriched with composted manure with happy worms doing their thing. Old straw is waiting to mulch betwixt and between the rows. I have pinched the odd tiny leaf of arugula to taste its peppery flavor. Peas, lettuce, beets and carrots have all sprouted. Purple cabbage, banana pepper and kale seedlings look so tiny, but how they will grow. Asparagus keeps pushing through, and rhubarb is crazy. Seeds for green beans, pole beans, swiss chard, zucchini, cukes, pumpkins and next flights of peas have all been planted, and the tomatoes have just started going in. Strawberries are blooming. Now if we could just have a nice gentle rain to tuck it all in!
