We welcome spring (at last!!)...

The garden is growing nicely...rows of lettuce and radishes are ready for picking. The peas are just starting to climb up the wire; last year we had peas all summer. They were so good in salads and sauteed with a little butter and added to new potatoes.  That's the guest house you see in the background; a wonderful view for my wonderful guests!
And these are future strawberries...just getting ripe! Lou discovered the pesky sparrows were getting in and helping themselves so covered the bed with pipe and plastic mesh. I'm looking forward to lots of strawberry shortcake...and jam for the winter! He makes the very best jam!!!
