Although the seeds haven't even germinated we are already enjoying the harvest from her garden plot. The pigs are anxious for the pastures to be ready to graze again after a winter spent by the barn. They were thrilled to get a taste of the days ahead, eagerly munching on the grassy roots pulled to make way for our salad.
When my mom comes for a visit she's always happy to be put to work. This time she dug and planted a plot of salad greens on the south side of the house. Every spring I think about the early salad I could get by planting in this sunny spot, but never manage to find the time to actually do it.
