Planting season gears up
As we move into the first few weeks of spring the garden has been undergoing a rapid transformation into the bountiful wonderland of the planting season. The first bean and corn sprouts can be seen peeking above the the well worked soil, while many more below the surface are awaiting the perfect sunny moment to burst forth from the mother earth look upon the sun for the first time. Tomatoes have been transplanted and baby squash plants are trying to find homes in gardener’s parcels. The chayote vines are creeping steadily up their trellises while gardeners think of the many different ways to eat the delicious fruit that will come. For those who have not yet planted there is no need to worry, it is still early in the season and there is plenty of time to fill your garden with the foods that will delight your taste buds.
