A few things growing

Celeriac and leek.


Cabbage and cauliflower.


A few young asparagus I grew from wild seed.

Self-seeded chamomile.

My tarragon survived the winter on the deck with no protection!  Amazing.

I also started some calendula, sweet pea, basil and cumin this evening.  The cumin is an experiment--we'll see how this Asian spice does in western Minnesota.

The seedlings look great, I hope the weather is fantastic for you this year and there are no surprises! I can't wait to get mine in the ground, I should have already but we have some strange lows in the 30s forecasted this week so I'll wait until Saturday it looks like.

I'd say you have a LOT of things growing! I can't seem to winter over any herbs except chives. Even if I mulch them. I just started tomatoes and peppers today. (Well, with morning temps in the low 20s it's hard to believe there will actually be a summer this year!)

I love how my herbs can survive winter. They are the first things to show green in the spring. And with no work from me!!! Awesome! Stevie@ruffledfeathersandspilledmilk.com

Wow! I grew celeriac two years ago and loved it -wish i had thought to order celeriac seed this year. And what a great idea to grow asparagus from wild seed.
