We planted out first section of the garden: onions, radishes and chard.
We’ve never planted chard this early. We usually wait until after last frost, but I did a bit of reading and apparently it can be planted 2 to 3 weeks before last frost. So, since we bought 300 seeds, we planted half and kept half just in case.
My brother introduced me to chard a few years ago. He told me that they’re full of vitamins and sent me some seeds. I planted it and was excited when I could harvest it for the first time. It’s an interesting veggie. The stems has a celery-like taste to them and the green leafy part taste similar to spinach. We love it on sandwiches and in stir-fries.
The onions should do fine, We discussed how nice it’s going to be in about 5 to 8 weeks that we can make Bruschetta with our own fresh green onions. Yum. To us, Fresh green onions make a world of difference in the taste of Bruschetta. Oddly, we prefer canned tomatoes to fresh ones in it.
The radishes should do fine, they usually do. I’m not a fan of eating radishes, but my husband eat them. I prefer them for pest control.I plant them in many places around the garden as we plant more things.
And so another year of gardening begins.
I hope you all are making plans
and getting ready for the blooming season.
May the lush days of Spring brighten your world
and bring you many smiles.
