So we remember her each year when we put pansies into the front planters. (I’ve talked about this before.)
This year, since the weather was so unseasonably warm beginning in February, I took a chance and planted some veggie seeds for a change. Some kind of “mesclun mix,” spinach, and a few rows of radishes.
When we got a little snow about a week after I planted the seeds, I was kind of worried, but not really. It was no problem. “A little spring snow never hurt anything.”
We added pansies about a week ago. We got them this year from the Dutch Bakery in Tipton. I did tell you they sell plants, too, right? They’ve got far more than those incredible “Dutch letters”!
The radishes are coming along. I planted a bunch of different types. Looking forward to a couple of radish sandwiches!
We’ve already had several salads from thinning out the various lettuces and other greens in that mesclun mix. Oh it’s so good!
Happy spring, everyone!
