It's hot. It's cold. It's hot. It's cold.
Such has been spring so far. But for the most part, the garden doesn't seem to mind.
The lettuce is abundant. The carrots are tall. The peas are huddled together, latched onto each other like a little codependent family.
The majority of the work in the garden over the last month has been in thinning carrots. We haphazardly distributed carrot seeds when we planted them, and it appears we overplanted, because we have carrot sprouts galore. Each day we thin a few more, trying to give them space to grow. Now that the carrot tops are more than four inches tall, pulling up the plants seems like a shame, but we know it's needed.
