Being Dutch, I make sure we always have spring bulbs planted. These were the first to wake up.
I wish it was warm enough to plant the bulbs for this summer, but we still have occasional frost at night. So instead I planted broccoli, cauliflower, sugar snap peas and some container tomatoes, so that I can take those in when they forecast a frost.
Also planted a bunch of herbs. I love cooking with fresh herbs!
And my garlic sprouted! I planted it last fall, on a cold, windy day when I was sad about gardening season about over. But now the planting pays off and I have baby garlic plants to show that yes, spring is here!
Meanwhile the kids are enjoying the good weather.
It is nice to see my kids climbing trees, just like I used to do all the time when I was a kid.
