Easter Sunday in the Garden

It was a gorgeous day to work in the garden...low 70's, low humidity, and breezy sunshine.

The Clematis is in full bloom on the trellis...

The spinach is starting to grow "up"

My experiment, a couple "French fingerling" potatoes. Hard to tell but there is about a 12 inch hill there.

Kind of a mess...there is ALOT of baby good stuff in those boxes!

Peas are almost to the trellis.

Beets, Early Girl tomato, arugula, and lettuce.

Romaine and Red Sails...salad soon!

Artichoke and garlic...just need some bread crumbs and butter!

Raspberry is reaching for the sky.

Arugula, swiss chard and lettuce.

A satisfying day in the garden followed by a delish ham dinner. Happy Easter!
