Veggie garden’s ready in case I ever get ready. I did already put some lettuce and peas in on the left.
Only super hardy stuff goes in now. We can’t do our regular planting (tomatoes etc) until after Memorial Day.
Short growing season in Vermont.

But best of all, my favorite flowers are STILL here

  1. Looks wonderful. I’ve spent the last few weekends putting in three raised beds. I’m gonna put in a seeds this weekend (I hope).On earth day had to cut down an old dying maple. What irony.
