Yesterday was officially the first day of Spring. Another Winter is behind us and just ahead of us is warmer weather, more sunshine and lots of vegetable gardening! I can’t wait, I love Spring.
Soon, the flowering bulbs will appear under the snow cover. Crocuses, daffodils, tulips, hyacinths all showing off their true colours after a good Winter’s rest.
It won’t be long now – the trees have started leafing out and we will begin to hear the aspen leaves rustling in the winds.
Once the Garden dries out, we can get in there and rototill. Last Fall we made sure to cover the vegetable garden with a good layer of manure before sowing with fall rye.
It’s a fantastic green manure option to keep in mind if you are trying to improve your soil. And you should be trying to amend and improve your garden soil every year.
My thoughts are now turning to starting seeds. I realize that many of our readers can begin seed sowing earlier than we can here in the Cariboo. It’s been hard reading the blogs of early season gardening friends, watching as their seedlings grow while snow still covers our garden here. Soon, however I can get started – I’m so glad Spring is here!
How about you? Have you got all your seeds started or are you also waiting a couple more weeks to begin?
