Spring fever!

Thought I'd give ya'll a quick update on what's been happening in the gardens!
Since the last snow melted, it's been so nice, and I've been spending a lot of time in the gardens - both the STARworks Garden and greenhouse, and the garden at home - which will serve as an extension to STARworks garden. My back is starting to adjust to all the digging:)

So far in the ground: few different types of carrots and beets, some radishes, cilantro and parsley, spinach, scallions, red yellow and white onions, garlic that was planted last october looks good, kale and collards are making a nice comeback, and a few mizuna plants survived the winter without any protection. Started a bunch of edible pod peas at home and will do more of those at STARworks - so that our school groups can have something to munch on:)
In the greenhouse: different varieties of pak choi, cabbages, broccoli, more parsley, a red stalked celery, lettuces, about 10 different varieties of flowers - some of those seeds I brought back from Estonia. It's good to see that Chamomile is establishing itself in the garden and finding places to grow, same with some poppy plants, hollihocks and other flowers. Strawberries look good, daylilies are poking out their heads... Spring is showing itself everywhere! Lets hope the cold is gone for good!
