Spring Has Arrived and I’m Getting an Early Start on the Garden!

This weekend was beautiful and warm in the Pacific Northwest. Rarely am I able to rotovate the garden in mid-February, but I did take advantage of the beautiful sunshine we’ve been having for the last several days and did get the garden rototilled. IMG_1962With help from Ollie,

I planted 13 short rows of onion sets – some white, some yellow and some red. Now is a great time to plant onions, chives, early potatoes, peas and other cool weather crops in our zone 6 Pacific Northwest climate.IMG_1964IMG_1956Then we took a walk around the yard
