Today was first really nice sunny and warm day and it actually felt like spring. So of course I had to get out to my garden and start preparing my beds - the ones on the side of the house. The new garden area is no where near being finished so it won't be planted just yet. But my old 5 beds could be prepped now. I had cleaned and turned soil and added compost to all of them. Two of the beds still have some strawberries that will be moved to the new area but for now they'll remain there. Then I transplanted some of my cabbages and broccoli to the first bed. Maybe it's a bit early but the weather channel shows that it will remain in 60's and 40's at night so all these transplants should make it. I also planted some early peas, sprinkled some additional spinach, salads and planted couple of rows of radishes. It was wonderful to play in dirt again! And then I noticed that my tulips woke up! can you spot them? And my hyacinths are also waking up! couple of more sunny weeks and it will be all in bloom! spring just can't come fast enough!
