Another Day of Gardening!

 Our high temp today was 65 degrees and the sun put in an appearance around mid-day.  It was the perfect day for spending in the garden and that's what I did ... actually I spent a couple of hours playing in the dirt and planting these ...

This is the raised bed that I planted the candy onions in yesterday  I planted broccoli in the other half.

This raised bed is home to brussels sprouts and 3 cabbage plants.  We've enjoyed our fresh from the garden brussels sprouts throughout this winter so much that we want to a get spring planting in for further enjoyment!

Here are the rest of the cabbage plants. In another 2 - 3 weeks we'll do another planting of cabbage so we can spread the harvest out over a longer period of time.

Tomorrow is supposed to be another nice day and I hope to do more planting.  This is the stretch of warm sunshine filled days I was waiting for to get the spring planting done.  I need to get the summer crop seeds started in the greenhouse... tomatoes, peppers, etc.  We are approximately 6 weeks away from our last frost date so it's time!  

We're not finished with cold weather, we'll have more, but for now, I'm enjoying the respite from winter cold!


A Working Pantry

She looketh well to the ways of her household … Proverbs 31:27

My pantry is intentional, purposeful, simple, practical, frugal and what works for my family.  It’s the food items and household supplies that keep my household running smoothly ready and available when they are needed.  It’s my contribution to our family’s economy and my work-from-home ‘job.'

  1. How wonderful to be able to get outside and enjoy this nice weather! It is still so wet and muddy here that we are staying on hard surfaces for a bit longer.

    1. Lana, our row garden is still too wet and muddy, but thankfully the raised beds and container garden are a go. We have water standing in a lot of places and all the ditches are full so we have a ways to go yet.
