Plants

Spring gardening has started.  The broccoli is an inch or two high, peppers have been started but are not showing their heads, same with the chives.  This is the second year I’ve done any gardening and I still find it amazing that such tiny seeds grow into lovely, tasty, edible, plants.  I’m lame.  What can I say.  Here is the broccoli so far along with cat damage

As you can see the top photo is the one Claire decided to make her very early morning snack.  The bottom is what’s left over.  If they continue to grow, 4ish heads should be plenty for two people.  This type of broccoli, Calabrese Green Sprouting, will have one main head with lots of shoots until the weather gets too warm and it starts bolting.  Too warm are daytime temps consistently above 70.  This is Oregon where summer doesnt start until after the 4th of July.  Hopefully it’ll make for a season with enough to try this.
