Tis cold, dreary and raining, hovering around 40 degrees F.  Yesterday, the first of May felt like the beginning of March and today there is a hint of spring with dashes of lightening and rolling peals of thunder.

At least on Saturday, the 30th of April, I amended two of my raised vegetable beds with compost, added rich black mulch and planted the seeds of lettuces, spinach, beets, carrots, dill and onion bulbs.  We got to taste the first spinach and lettuce that I planted in March under my hoop houses covered with a  white cloth that lets in moisture and 85% of the light. Fresh from the garden, the greens need no dressing, they are exquisite just naked.
