Here Comes the Garden!

I cannot WAIT until this thing blooms. Every day is appears to double. It’s my Icelandic Poppy and it has beautiful orange petals and a yellow center. This year I also need to get my hands on a Himalayan Blue Poppy.

Added chives to a few salads already. Saving money by not buying green onion (a whole $1 a week). My 3-year old eats these right out of the raised bed.

Transplanted some lettuce last night and it survived so I think we have a rather positive start to this micro-farming operation. The things we have to look forward to are making it hard to sleep. I see so many perennials coming back this year I am beyond ecstatic. C’mon June!!
