Working in the Garden on this fine spring day!

It's April 9th and it's 79 degrees out, I just HAD to get in the garden today!  I had to run to the feed store for chicken food.  They had all sorts of starts out so I picked up some onions and strawberries.  I cleaned up the strawberry bed, the ones I planted last year are coming back and spreading real nicely so I added 30 more plants and hopefully they'll take!  Here's the bed all planted, I need to get more straw for a ground cover.

Doesn't look like much now, I know!
Look real close you can see some green in the dirt!

My garden needs a lot of clean up.  Last fall, my husband was very ill and I never got to do my fall clean-up so a lot of grass and weeds were able to take over.  Hopefully we can get the tiller out this weekend!
I grow cukes and zukes in the bed with the frames---it worked out very nicely last year!

Ugh, a lot of work is needed in these beds!
Chives are coming up again---looks to be another bumper crop!
Garlic is coming up!  I planted these last fall, they'll be ready in early July!
The tomato beds from last year.  I'm not sure what's going in here yet---probably  potatoes this year.

Tomorrow, I'm going to take some of my compost and spread it on the strawberry beds!  I love spring!!!
