In the last week, the garden went from looking like this:

End of March Gardening

to looking like this:

Easter Gardening

Partly it’s because I spent a good portion of this afternoon digging up sections of my bunching onions and shifting them to the fenceline so I could put in the flat of new plants Rudi and I bought yesterday. (I added a couple new herbs, celery, yellow onions, strawberries, and flowers.)

And partly it’s because things are finally really starting to grow.

We have violets:


We have peas:

Pea Shoots

And we have spring greens:


I love this time of the year at the garden. You can really see the difference at every visit!

Once the gardens get going it really feels like spring here. We have been promised warmth today and the next few days. Possible storms and I love that kind of weather. My clematis has buds already! A tree I though was a goner, a seedling, is coming back wonderfully. I think we really appreciate the colors after a dark, lonely winter
