Garden fever!

Portland had some unseasonably warm weather this February. Cherry trees, crocus, daffodils, quince, even some flowering currants have burst into bloom. We all have spring fever and garden fever as well! Gretel is watching curiously as our seeds germinate in the bedroom window and the stacks of seed catalogs get a 4th and 5th look. Above are Gretel and Pops next to the baby spinach, salad greens and mache growing in our cold frame. The front beds will hold most of our greens this spring as the back yard is still not quite ready for our beds. (We did manage to plant enough peas back there to feed the whole city though!)
