First seeds planted

I'm sure you've heard the saying, "If you don't like the weather, wait 5 minutes." Here at the Frugal Farm, the weather changed almost that quickly. After waking up to snow on Wednesday, by Friday it was beautifully sunny, and Saturday and Sunday were in the 70s and just gorgeous. We spent most of Saturday getting sunburned, trimming trees and burning brush, and getting the garden into planting shape. Four years ago we had a dump-truck-load of shredded bark mulch delivered, and the last of the pile was enough to cover the wide center path of the garden and the beginning of each side path. I need to get some more mulch and pull some more weeds but we are well on our way to a good garden!

This afternoon I finally managed to get the spring crops planted. I planted carrots, lettuce (2 types), spinach, cauliflower, red and green cabbage, radishes, peas, and onions.

And remember the quickly changing weather? Tonight's forecast is for mid-30s with a chance of rain or snow showers. But at least the seeds are in the ground!
