We had .31 in of much needed rain yesterday, the grass is really green and we will need to mow soon, the trees are getting leaves. I decided to plant mixed greens and carrots , and next week I will put my row net that Brad and Nikole gave me over the rows to further bunny proof .
Always amazing how after being inside all winter I can't wait to get out there and plant things and play in the dirt. The rhubarb that I transplanted last year all came up but the plants are very very small and the rhubarb stalk is just a little thicker then match stick. I hope that during this summer they will continue to grow and get bigger. I will just borrow rhubarb from my sister. I like to make a pineapple / rhubarb jam and then Nikole has a REALLY good strawberry / rhubarb cobbler recipe and I want to make that at least twice! Strawberry shortcake.
I have been thinking I might go to MN for strawberry picking as the ones I picked down here last year were not at all good. I also have used all but 2 packages of Blueberries so that means a
field trip to WI. in July .
Now just need to wait for about 6 weeks and I will have fresh salad greens.
