Time to Grow!

Showcase 2, apparently, is going to grow whether I help out or not.

An onion from last year.

Maybe garlic? It doesn’t look quite right, though.

Tulips. In last year’s potato patch.

More tulips. I’ll try to dig around these when I start digging over that bit for the grass.

Digging over the pea patch. When you’re working organic material into the soil (the straw), the decomposition process sucks nitrogen out of the soil. You want to dig it over at least a couple of weeks before you plant so that a nitrogen deficiency doesn’t slow down the growth of the seedlings. However, given how much nitrogen we had in the soil last year, I think I’ll be pretty safe with just giving it a couple of days before I put the seeds in.
