Idaho is a four season climate and while all the seasons have their pros and cons, I love spring the best. To me, spring means the end of the cold and plants come back to life. I enjoy gardening. It gets me outside as I prepare my soil, plant seeds and cleanup leaves. I love seeing plants emerge this time of year. Rhubarb is growing tall! My mint parsley, oregano, rosemary, sage, leeks, thyme and strawberries all survived winter and are thriving. I’ve planted seeds for cool weather crops (radishes, lettuce and snow peas) and have onion starts in the ground.
I live in Meridian and we can see quite a variation in weather in April. Today is going to be an outstanding day though – a high of 71 degrees, little to no wind, and clear blue sky. Just a perfect day to be outside!
Here’s what’s growing today:
Thanks for taking my brief garden tour. I hope you’re having a beautiful day, too!
