First of March Garden

Our coldest months are finally behind us! At least I hope so. March can be so iffy for us. But spring flowers are blooming everywhere and that's always cheerful, no matter what the weather is like.

Almond

Forsythia

Japanese magnolia

Peach

Daffodils

February went from frigid to mild and with a lot of rain, so my winter garden has been growing like crazy! We've been eating a lot of salads and sauteed greens from the garden.

Cosmic purple carrots and broccoli. We finished the broccoli
heads a while ago but the plants continue producing florets.

To top our salads, I still have plenty of feta cheese stored in herbed olive oil. That plus black olives (Dan's favorite) make for delicious fresh winter eating.

Everything we're eating from the garden was planted last fall. Some things made it, others didn't. Here's what's there now ...

Carrots, beets, multiplier onions, heading collards, & clover

Savoy cabbages with living mulch of clover

Claytonia (miners lettuce)

Mizuna mixed with chickweed. The mizuna is already trying to go to seed!

Carrots, lettuce, and chickweed.

My main garlic bed.

Resting garden beds. Some I filled with leaf mulch,
in others I grew a cover crop of annual rye & clover.

How about you? Anything happening in your garden?
