Spring arrived. Actually it was more like a sweltering touch down. None the less, it was great to see something other than gray in the sky. I finished planting my vegetable bed. Added a sun gold tomato, 2 broccoli plants (found these at the Ballard Farmers Market and couldn't resist) and 3 ghost pumpkin starts. On a whim I also bought 4 organic strawberry plants, tristar variety, and planted those around our patio. Now I'm set. Just a waiting. Checking all the time, fussing, watering, definitely smothering. Just can't stay away. I'm too excited. Here is the complete list of what's planted in the raised bed. Starting in the closest corner and going clockwise: 2 broccoli plants & 2 ghost pumpkins, tomato & 1 ghost pumpkin, snap peas (bush variety), potatoes, edible flowers, carrots, salad mixes, cilantro & parsley.
