Meanwhile, it's just about time to start transplanting our cool-weather seedlings into the garden! The early direct-seeded lettuce and radishes hung on through the last snow and are now emerging. Such a happy sight.
And there's more exciting news: we're getting four new raised beds to expand our planting area by 50%! We look forward to a season with more variety, more beauty, and more food (for us and to share). The Green Chillis and I spent some time marking off approximately where the new beds will be, which was a good exercise in applied mathematics (and showed that my math muscles have been atrophying. Sigh.).
