I love this weather!

A lot of the pansies I planted last spring came back this year. Also blooming in my yard are crocuses! Hyacinths with be next, with daffodils not far behind, and some tulips as well. Spring has definitely sprung, and the forsythia are blooming everywhere on my street!
The garlic is getting taller.
I planted some more tall telephone peas peas, parsnips, cilantro and Saxa II radishes in the garden today, as well as transplanting some Sanguine Ameliore lettuce I had started inside from seed. We'll see how it does. It's too early to move anything else outside and I am finding that I am not really following the garden plan I had laid out in the winter. I can only plant the early crops at the fringes of the garden, since I didn't till it yet and have to do it by hand. I didn't want to plant right in the middle of the untilled garden where the plants will be difficult to till around when the time comes. So things are going in a kind of mish-mosh row. I've got to stop now though because the next row back is for summer squash and watermelons, and that's the best place for them!
I moved my "greenhouse" outside for a bit of sun today.
