Happy Tuesday, sweet friends! I hope your Easter was blessed and that you’ve got your menu planned for April. 🙂 In our garden, I’m continuing to harvest asparagus, the peas are about 2 inches tall, and I should be looking to harvest the first lettuce in a few weeks. I moved the tomato and pepper seedlings to bigger pots so they can continue to grow strong for the next month (tomatoes) or two (peppers) and am hardening off the broccoli, cabbage, and cauliflower starts (always the diciest part of growing from seeds for me!). How are your gardens growing?

From this week’s Tuesday Garden Party host, Michelle from SimplifyLiveLove:
I headed down to Central Missouri this week to visit with my parents and my 91 year old grandfather who is not doing that well. I always love the drive down south as the seasons change – because I get to witness the changes from my car. Spring in Missouri is quite a bit ahead of my home in Iowa, which makes me hopeful for its march north.
I also always like to come to Missouri to see what my dad’s up to in his garden. He has taught me a lot about gardening and is always helpful to lend a supportive voice when I call screaming about the latest nasty bug I found in my plants. His 7000 + square foot garden produces a good portion of the food he and my mom eat, and he donates a lot of the surplus too. He’s already planted all of his potatoes and onions, as well as greens, kohlrabi, and chard. Spring is coming to all of us – this trip south has given me renewed hope.
As always, I am happy to see what you all are up to in your gardening efforts. I’ve picked a few posts this week that I really enjoyed!
1. I love this Tree Limb Trellis shared by Moms’s Sunday Cafe.
2. These gorgeous pictures of the snowy March foliage and animals shared by A Guide to Northeastern Gardeners are simply stunning!
3. How to Grow Asparagus by Return to Simplicity – because YUM! I can’t wait for asparagus.
4. This Planning the Garden post by View From In Here is fun to read. I love seeing other people’s plans.
5. Finally, here’s a fun DIY Garden Planter from Garden Up Green! Easy and cute.
