There's not much going on in the garden here at the end February. Hopefully the coldest of the winter has passed and it will start feeling more like spring. However, there is still some life in the garden even at the end February. Carrots, lettuce, Swiss chard and spinach are still hanging on. I'm so glad that I planted a bunch of carrot seeds in the fall. It has been so nice having them throughout the winter.
Fresh and colorful veggies make the dreary winter days a bit better.
We've also been working on getting the garden ready for spring. I added compost to the rows that don't have winter crops, which is two thirds of the garden. Then we tilled on Friday and Saturday. The fence is still down on one side, so hopefully the deer don't figure that out and decide to work on my winter veggies. I've also started onion, tomato, pepper and cabbage seeds inside. It won't be long until spring planting and summer harvests.
