The high winds took care of most of the remaining snow cover.
The bad plot, covered with cardboard and leafy mulch. The strawberries under the polyspun in the near corner are actually still green.
All of the plots are brown. My camera batteries gave out at this point, so I didn't get a photo of my other plot, but it just has some limp onions and a few scraggly herbs. Some of the horehound is holding on, as well as the rosemary and lavendar (this is the second winter for both).
What this summer's garden looks like right now:
pisum sativum (varietar for pea shoots)
yardlong bean (vigna unguiculata 'Sesquipedalis') var. Red Stripe Seed
chinese cabbage (brassica campestris var chinensis) var. Fong San Improved
Holy basil, red leaf (ocimum tenuiflorum Linn)
chinese cabbage (brassica campestric var chinensis) Frilled Leaf TW
chin-chiang cabbage (brassica campestric var chinensis) Green Baby
choy sum ((brassica campestric var chinensis)) Canton Extra Dwarf
gai lan (brassica oleracea alboglabra) Blue Star
chinese mustard (brassica juncea) Peacock Tail
thai chili (capsicum annuum)
oriental squash (cucurbita) Hybrid Baby Delica
I'll be getting some zucchini and other squash seeds locally, and buying tomato, tomatillo, artichoke, and maybe hot pepper (if I can find the varietar I want, and I usually can't) as small plants in May. Oh, and I need to order a lily, I'm going to try a miniature tub lily instead of lotus this year. The dwarf papyrus is doing ok overwintering in my house, I think it might make it to spring.
In the meantime, I found a coffee carafe at the thrift store and am going to turn it into a mini terrarium.
