Would you believe that we had fresh kale and lettuce from the garden already?!
That’s right – on March 31 – which is officially the earliest we have ever eaten from the garden – we had our first salad.
But believe me- this is no joke.
So how did we get to a harvest so quickly when this is the time most people are just getting things planted?
Remember back last fall when I happened to mention in a post that Buddy and I transplanted some late cabbage, broccoli, kale and lettuce into a thrown together cold frame of cement blocks and old windows?
But then the weather warmed up this spring and some of those plants perked right up and started to grow!
it was a miracle!
And now, for the first time ever – instead of playing catch up with my Amish neighbors – I’m ahead of them!
Never mind that I had to start last October and it was kind of an accident.
Hey – I win is a win!
And fresh veggies the last day of March is most definitively a win!
