last week [happenings in the garden]

No sooner did we get our chickens, did a hawk swoop down and get one. It was quite traumatic for Jaiden and I and we decided the best thing to do was replace it.

It was a quite week in the garden for the most part. We enjoyed our first asparagus harvest and it was quite delicious.  Garlic is growing good and needing weeding here and there already.  I direct sowed some dill this year to use for dill pickles that we love so much and we happened to just finish our last jar of them last weekend.  I started quite a few seeds in terra cotta pots last night- cucumbers, beans, cabbages, and carrots so far. Peppers are well on their way and growing nicely.  New this year will be melons, but waiting for warmer temperatures to start those directing in the ground.
