Garden Take One

 We started our garden a little early this year.  I mean why not, right? We are home, we have the time, and there are always those cold weather loving veggies that we never seem to make the time for planting early in the season.  

We didn't plant everything, just a few things.  Pea's, lettuce, radishes.... because on top of everything else, I want a salad!!  So, we did it.  Just one row.  Sure wish I had made my row straight to go with the fence!

The ladies were thrilled to have us outside.  
We did have to move away from the garden before they tried to scratch up all our work!

These two cuties were so excited to be out with us and enjoy that sunshine! 

Things were going great.  Nice amounts of rain and warm temperatures.  And then....

It snowed. It sleeted. Cold temperatures returned! We'll go back to the garden on Saturday and evaluate, but with how cold it's been, we will probably have to replant.  
That's ok though.  I can make my row straight this time!

Anyone else start planting yet?


  1. Sorry to see the snow ruin your hard work...last whole week we had really warm weather, almost 25C...then two days ago, it got really cold again, I meant..-1C in the early morning...just so crazy. Today it's so warm and sunny again..well, it's APRIL!!

  2. so sorry I know its a horrible feeling we had that happen last year its went to 38 in Florida after I planted a tree everything died . Hope you can get it going again. stay well

  3. Now I want to plant peas! Hopefully the seeds will be ok after this little cold snap. It seems crazy to still be getting snow in the middle of April!

  4. I am going outside today to start peas, lettuce, radish and transplant a few of my cabbage. I do hope we start to warm up. We had 15 degrees for the low the other night. ;-(

  5. I'll look forward to seeing your veggies grow. How nice to eat salad fresh from your own garden.

  6. Good to see you back on the blog. Stay safe. Cheers
