Well if you have not gotten out into the vegetable garden plotÃ‚ yet this is the weekend to do it. The weather has started to warm as so also the soil. The suburban garden vegetable plot is in and doing fine salads this week will be coming out of the early spring plantings made at the end of March leaf lettuce, and baby spinach will be on the menu. The Swiss chard is also ready for a meal or two. Broccoli stated under a low tunnel is heading up already so we will be having some of that soon as well.
Yes getting out in early spring does have some rewards but getting out and getting your vegetables in now offer just as many. The thought of fresh home grown produce makes my mouth water and there is nothing better than something that has just come from the garden. If you have not had a vegetable garden in a while or not ever than you are missing out on an unbelievable treat. As you can see from the photo there is an awful lot one can grow from a small space. If you do want to dig up a garden or don’t have any you can always throw together a few pots on a patio and balcony and still enjoy some fresh produce this summer.
