The kids and I went out a few days ago to turn over some soil and plant our peas and beans. To our amazement, our garden already has Stuff growing in it. Edible Stuff!

Ah, the joy of perennials. While we were inside whiling away the winter hours on art projects, last year’s sleepy plants have perked back up. The strawberries are lifting their wilted leaves and starting to grow, and the chives were ready to cut for our dinner salad.
