Spring starts with lettuce and herbs

It's time for core vegetables to be planted.  This weekend, the new herb and veggie beds off the patio were filled in.  An easy walk out the kitchen doors and you can reach over to cut or break off a few delicious morsels to cook with.

Our kitchen garden received:
- Italian flat leaf and curly parsley
- 3 heads of mixed leaf lettuce
- Arp Rosemary
- Lavender
- Echinacea
- English and Silver Edged Thyme
- 2 chive plants
- a variegated Sage

And to pretty it up we included some tulips, hyacinths, agapanthus storm cloud, verbascum, pansies, caliamagrostis overdam.

The large vegetable patch was weeded and implanted with 3 additional lettuce starts.  The onions and broccoli starts are keeping toasty under the cold frame until the rain lets up a bit more and my backside doesn't end up drenched again in the garden.  Potatoes are in their paper bag calling my name, urging me to dig their trenches.  While the cilantro from last year has nicely seeded itself and is rising from the beds.

Hope your greens have made it in the ground as well.
