Farmer Favog's Almanac
The backyard garden has been in for about three weeks now, and the wheelbarrow greens garden has been in about a week.
Here's how it looks after a week of rain and warm weather.
The mustard greens have sprouted, and they're growing fast. The green onions, we're still waiting on.
The first thing we get every spring, though, is the wild mint all over our yard. When some plants go nuts all over the yard, you just don't mind.
There's little better than tea steeped with a big, big sprig of mint in the bottom of the pot.
Ditto for mint juleps and mojitos -- God's gift to the liver, both.
Even the houseflies agree.
