The Past Few Days

I've picked water cress from the spring branch to add to salad.
I've burned a few limbs.
We have planted broccoli, cauliflower, cabbage (two kinds), brussel Sprouts, radishes, lettuce and turnips.  We've  also sewn bare spots here and there with turnips for three reasons:  We will eat them, the deer will eat them and they will prevent erosion.
I've enjoyed clear waters
and beautiful flowers with soft rain.
We are blessed.

You must be singing "zippity do dah" (or something) . . .
WOW . . . spring has arrived in Arkansas!
We had our first 70 on our primary day and that was only one thing that broke records.
Warmer it will be for a few more days, (early for us here in Michigan.)
Quite a garden you have planned and planted!
Clear water and flowers . . . wonderful!
Rain?

Glad you got your rain. We're enjoying sunshine - finally!
Smart to plant where there might be erosion.

I just love this time of year! Looks like you're off to a great start. I'm itching to get my fingers dirty in my garden again.

Glad you mentioned turnips. I need to plant some. I love them with a few red-pepper flakes cooked in with some sugar and then served with a touch of vinegar.
My city husband won't touch them.

I saw some good looking plants at W-M today that made me rethink planting some broccoli and kale.

Glad you got the rain for the garden.

How nice you include plantings for the deer. I always include extra for the bunnies.

Oh yes, those are wonderful blessings! Your weather is so much nicer than ours. It'll take awhile for us to get there and I'm really looking forward to it!

Looks like you are having a good start to spring! One of the many downfalls of living North, spring is still a ways away. Enjoy your garden.

Karen S. said...

Oh yes, lovely thoughts. I can taste that yummy salad and smell that sweet burning fire. Life is so darn good! Must take the time to appreciate always!

Truedessa said...

It must be much warmer in your part of the world. I think I'll pass on the brussel sprouts but, broccoli and cauliflower I would def enjoy. It seems you always find something to keep you busy. Have a great weekend Gail.

Well, as I catch up on your posts ... you've certainly not been taking it easy!

Great planting " broccoli, cauliflower, cabbage (two kinds), brussel Sprouts, radishes, lettuce and turnips. " and that watercress looked nice too.

All the best Jan
