Vegetable Garden Started, Carrots Harvested
This year we are getting a bit of a head start on our vegetable garden. Jerry helped put the cold frame over a raised bed that was dry enough to weed. He also put a window frame over the part of the bed that the cold frame did not cover.
Before this could happen there was weeding to be done. Low and behold in the weeds were carrots! Purple Dragon Carrots that had survived the winter and were growing new tops! They will be ate with our supper tonight.
Once the cold frames were installed I planted lettuce, spinach and carrot seeds. Hopefully it will not take too long for the seeds to begin to germinate. I am anxious to begin eating out of our garden again, although we do still have plenty of canned food from last year. It has been a great feeling knowing we have plenty to eat and that we grew most of it ourselves.
