Spring Springs

Spring is early this year. In fact, we're having summer weather, and it's only just past the middle of March.

Charlie has already put in the spring garden: lettuce, spinach, snow peas, sugar snap peas, green onions and potatoes.

He usually starts seeds in the potting shed, but this year he just planted.

Well, actually, he started AND planted ON the potting shed. I'm not sure where this idea originated, but I found it on Pinterest, linking back to this greenUPGRADER article on DIY Vertical Garden. I showed it to Charlie, and he affixed three old gutters to the sunny side of the potting shed, filled them with dirt and planted lettuce and spinach, which have already sprouted. :)

There's some good eatin' coming up, folks!
