Veggies started

image image image Some of the veggies wintered over such as the leeks and onions. I made sure that all of the potato volunteers have found a new home in the compost bin,

I planted starts for two types of kale, collards, spinach, romaine lettuce, and arugula.

Decided not to cover the beds with plastic but I did sprinkle everything with diatomaceous earth. It makes everything look white but keeps the slugs at bay. They won’t crawl over the tiny bits because it hurts their skin. Do slugs have skin? Whatever it is that covers their body does not like this white powder. It doesn’t hurt the plants at all so it’s a great deterrent.

i love going out and seeing this new life. We will have some cool nights in the next week so I may need to cover them but for now they can enjoy the sunshine, as we all are!
