Spring Gardens

Hello!

I have been staying home now for the past couple weeks (tough times with the virus, so sad) and plan on doing more of that except to check on my Mom. Doing lots in the house...watering my tropical plants (close to 100), cooking, cleaning, laundry, made some hospital masks for my cousin working as a nurse, working on projects, and lots of gardening outside. 

On my front porch I planted parsley in a big bucket, lettuce in my deck boxes, getting my big buckets ready for some veggies and annuals I like and lots in my veggie garden. I do lasagna garden and don't till...I cleaned some weeds out but the salt march hay cover helped a lot. I planted peas, my garlic is up 5 inches (yeah), split leeks, rhubarb is up, planted beets, carrots, swiss chard, kale, red onions, radishes. I don't sell my veggies but sometimes the tomatoes and butternut squash that grows out of my compost pile. My gardens are all organic...love Neptune's Harvest and Espoma garden products. I have also used Coast of Maine products as well.

Hoping to sell perennials and herbs out of my gardens sometime this year...perennials it's usually hit or miss, whatever I need to split. For herbs I have oregano, thyme, anise hyssop, fever few, catnip, garlic chives, reg chives, rue, angelica, Valerian. Lots of babies coming up now.

I'm selling local, raw pure Honey as well for my beekeeper in one, two and 5 pound jars.

So here is hoping you all stay well and hope to be able to visit garden centers soon.
