Vermont Spring Gardens
The weather was very warm when I first got back to Vermont, but then we had rain on Sunday and Monday and it has gotten cooler. The rain did pop out all the leaves though. Everything is so green even though the buds were barely showing when this picture was taken last week.
The grass also grew and grew fast. My son kindly mowed the lawn and I have been doing work in the gardens--weeding, raking, edging.
I did look out the window two days ago and saw a rabbit sitting by the back step. He seemed to be saying something about remembering that I had lettuce planted nearby last summer, and hadn't I better get out there and get started on that once again.
I have my herbs under control and I will add annuals to the gardens in a couple weeks. I have decided that I will be supporting the local farmers' markets for fresh vegetables though. There are so many and they are fun to attend. I think the local farmers deserve my support. Sorry, rabbit.
