Charlie has been working on the garden off and on for the past few weeks.
Although it’s still early in the season here in Maryland we are past our last frost date.
Last year he planted loads of (free) bunching onions around the tomato plants.
Last year’s tomatoes are gone but the onions are getting ready to blossom.
Charlie divided them and replanted each one separately.
The leeks from last year are also doing well.
In the various squares are cucumbers and French green beans.
Charlie covers the squares with salvaged fencing to keep the birds from having their way with the new shoots. Birds like to snap them off near the soil soon after they emerge.
In order to keep these early seeds warms he also covers them with old windows we bought at a yard sale.
Perhaps this reiteration of the garden every spring is boring but it’s our small attempt at both healthy eating and a useful hobby. (Like we don’t already have enough “hobbies”.)
Do you plant a garden? Veg? Flowers?
