This has worked well for our smaller garden. Most of the plants you saw in that post have been transplanted into larger pots and moved to another area.
This week I selected a few small sweet potatoes from last fall's harvest and put them in jars of water. In a few days they will begin to grow roots and send up leafy shoots called "slips". When the ground is warmer, these will be transplanted directly into the soil where they will grow into mature plants and form sweet potatoes.
The parsley that I grew in our cattle supplement tubs last year is beginning to send up flower spikes. Parsley is a biennial plant. It grows the first year it is planted producing the leaves we love so much. The second year it makes flowers and seeds. This plant is from last year. I will let this plant make seeds which I will harvest and plant next year. By the way, native pollinators love the flowers.A Phoebe built a mud nest on our front porch.
Finally, we are beginning to get some early produce from the garden. A couple of days ago I pulled these radishes out of the ground. They are a little small, but I just couldn't wait!
Happy springtime everyone!
