So begins a new season of the vegetable garden. Those plants already growing in the box are kale and collards. They are from last year.

Interesting plants, they would freeze and look destroyed like the other plants but then thaw out to look just as good as before the freeze. Kale and collards should be in the diet of every arctic explorer.

Last year, the garden was getting destroyed by slugs as usual. For the first time, I used Sluggo, an environmentally OK slug killer. Overnight they were gone!

Just hoping the wild turkeys don't get into the garden this year. Might have to do some fencing.

I don't think I got started planting until June last year. So, I am ahead of the game already.
