New garden

Just a quick update. Trying to build new gardens at my second home in East Windsor, Connecticut. It's been a trying spring. Lots of rain, little sunshine. Cold, cold, cold. A woodchuck razed the lettuce and pea garden to the ground a couple of weeks back. Today, I'm replanting there - Brandywine and Cherry tomatoes, and yellow squash. An herb potager is taking form: chives, lavender, lemon balm, parsley, mint. Basil will go in as soon as it warms up. Some flowers - impatiens and pansies. There is a big pot of strawberries putting out fruit. Money is tight, so I'm revisiting the practice of herbs from seed. I forgot how difficult it is to start all over again! But the challenge is sweet. Thank you, Mother Earth!
