Happy March (and the beginning of spring planting season)!
I'm trying two new plants this year: blueberries, for my boy who loves them so much he may just turn into one, and asparagus, because it's my favorite green vegetable.
Starting today, I am busy clearing out the flowers and plants that finally died in January, pruning rose bushes, and planting cold weather crops: mesclun greens, arugula, romain lettuce, spinach, and sugar snap peas. In April, I'll plant everything else.
I experience many more gardening failures than successes each year, but I love how my hope springs eternal each March. Squirrels, insects, and drought could not be further from my mind right now.
What are you excited to grow this year? Are you trying anything new?
