While the gardeners in warmer climates are busy getting their gardens underway, we must wait patiently in the colder growing zones.
I found myself kicking at the last stubborn snow piles around the kitchen garden this morning.
Mother Nature is bringing rain with possible thunderstorms this evening…that should erase the last evidence of winter-for now!
March is a month of high snowfall amounts, so I’m sure the white will blanket the garden a bit more before spring, or even well into spring!
That one year that I grew the most pretty Broccoli! No bugs, worms, caterpillars or disease!
Yet to be recreated.
Not a week goes by without a question about the little greenhouse in my garden.
I thought I would answer a few of the most often asked!
Yes, we built this greenhouse out of nearly all recycled material!
The greenhouse size is 10 x 10.
No, my husband does not have plans for the greenhouse–he does these projects in his head, not even a scribble on paper!
The color is a Dutch Boy Paint color called Pumpkin Stem.
I heat the greenhouse with electric heaters.
Yes, it really works as a greenhouse; growing seedlings each spring!
The garden is full of tomatoes, peppers, root vegetables and herbs.

The garden starts producing and getting a bit messy around the edges.
With the heat and mosquitoes I have been practicing ‘speed gardening’!
Quick water, quick harvest, quick dead head, quick weeding…oh heck,
I’ll get those weeds next time.
Yes, fresh Herbs are back!
Prepping for a demonstration at our local library this weekend.
Using Herbs to make fresh salad dressings in 60 seconds.
Mother Nature responds with sunshine, calm and a promise of nearly 70 degrees!
Rolling up my sleeves for a day of work.
This trellis needs work from some winter damage.
The list goes on from there!
The delay button has been pushed on warm weather!
This calls for a reminder of sun filled days in the garden.
