This is my first garden report of the season. To say I'm excited I have things returning to life and blooming and actually coming up is an understatement. I'm pretty gobsmacked some things are actually coming back, too.
I have spinach which has perrenialized. It tastes a little bitter but that's ok, winter makes me bitter, too and I don't have to live outside in the dirt.
I have daffodils!
The apple tree is budding!
And I didn't kill the lilac!
What I want to know is why the Hell can a four year old grow peas in a styrofoam cup but I can't get them to grow outside in the dirt? A question for the sages.
