animal lover, gardener, knitter, and gourmet cook

jumping the gun

Along with everyone else, I have been loving the nice weather. Since the long term forecast is calling for more of the same, I decided to do some early gardening this year. For insurance, I put my cold frames in the garden (as nice as the weather has been, this probably wasn’t even necessary). This evening, I planted scallions, radishes, mesclun, and spinach in them. I also put some onion sets in the ground.

In pond news, I removed the winter netting from the pond. I still need to hook up the pump and filter–that will be done within the next week. The fish all look good and there are a couple of babies in there that must’ve been born last summer. Seeing them was a nice surprise.
