It's Monday! Time for our weekly installment of Radical Homemaking. Interested in learning more about what that means, check out THIS post and THIS post.
Spring is definitely here in the DFW area. We've had some deep watering from April showers and all of the trees have leafed out. This month in the garden, I'm just weeding and watering as necessary. There's nothing to harvest quite yet, much to my displeasure. Last year at this time, I had a full compliment of lettuces and kale. This year for some reason, they're slow slow slow. Perhaps it was that late freeze. Whatever the reason, I'm hopeful (as all gardeners are by nature) that they'll kick in to high gear soon. Here's are some snap shots of the garden this weened just after the rainfall.
And just for fun, here's a shot of Billie on a roosting bar in the pen.
Currently growing in the garden:
7 varieties of heirloom tomato
Lilac Bell Pepper
Crystal Apple Cucumber
Onions (red and white)
