Cabbage is about all there is in the garden these days, a little bit of kale I am slowly feeding to the cows and the comfrey patch that I will transplant to another (irrigated) bed when the temperatures are better!
The garden seed and plant order is placed (Seeds of Change), the seed potatoes, onion sets and a couple of herbs I will seek out locally. There are a few new additions to the garden plan this year: ginger, wasabi, rhubarb (it says it can grow to Zone 10)! I am looking forward to these completely new challenges as well as the new varieties of old favorites.
When I find myself getting discouraged about having 3-4 days of clouds or temps in the 20's at night I go back and gaze at the picture that Jim and Kathleen sent us from a few weeks ago (Central Iowa):
Fish pole rack/holder Dave built in the barn:
Vera helping me fish, thank you girl!
"New" Mako 20' fishing boat: It needs some work and probably a tune up and then we can get out on the water! The Red fish are seriously calling me!
Nancy, the littlest cat and the bossiest cat:
Rudy doing what Rudy does, eating a sweet potato and looking cute!
