spring thaw

Garden Work

mud check
The garden is thawing! I went out with my shiny new shovel and checked in a few areas. Some places it goes 2 inches into the mud before it hits the frozen ground underneath. Some places are still ice covered and the shovel doesn’t go in at all.

I’m pleased to report that my garlic looks like it has survived the winter. The sprouts are small, but look like they’ll begin growing as soon as they can.

I’m planning to put up a low fence around the vegetable garden areas. I made my first visit of the season into a garden supply store and bought some fencing material. Time to start keeping the dog out of the vegetable area, even though he’s really cute.
