I planted my peas over the weekend even though I usually wait until early April. It's been so warm that I thought I'd give it a shot. While planting them I noticed that the nettles are all coming up around the front porch along with the rhubarb and all the tiny oregano, peppermint, sorrel and lemon balm.
I bought a bale of straw last weekend at Urban Farm Store and weeded a few areas in the front and then covered them with it. Next weekend I'll do the same in the back and plant some borage and arugula. I'm so happy that spring is on its way. I'm really looking forward to gardening this summer especially now that we cut down the old apple tree in the backyard. It's bittersweet because we really loved that tree but it was old, hollowed out and threatening to do some structural damage. We'll also get a lot more backyard sun light now that it's gone.
Hope you've been getting outside more now that it's been so nice. Here are a few of the tasty things we've been cooking and eating lately...
