Mother Nature has given Coloradoans the “all clear” to get our gardens in.
Yes! Yes! YES!
Madly planting on Saturday I realized I had been a bit zealous back in February because come planting time I had more flower and plant starts than I knew what to do with. Wielding a shovel and hoe I found—or made—room for everything. Yep, the yard’s a bit torn up but it’s all in!
Here’s some pretty little lettuce.
The crop I am most excited about is the tomatoes. I decided to go all heirloom this year and purchased seed for these beauties from www.rareseeds.com.
I can’t wait to bite into that Violet Jasper—the green and red tomato at bottom left. Last year I picked some up at the Farmers Market and made this spicy vegetable juice. So good!
