Broccoli Babies and Spring Chores


The only thing growing at the moment is broccoli seedlings. I was pleasantly surprised this week when the snow melted and I took a day off to do a little gardening and found red beets in the compost pile! I pulled small ones last fall that didn't materialize and threw them on the compost pile and low and behold, they grew over the winter. It was a delightful dinner surprise. The asparagus patch was cleaned up and the raspberry canes were trimmed back. I'm hoping to be off a day this week to start cleaning up dead stuff. Let the games begin!
