The garden is growing

The early stuff that was planted in the garden 2 weeks ago has started coming through the ground now. We have peas, onions, carrots, beets, lettuce and mustard and turnips up. The seedlings are starting nicely and the ones that have been up for a while are doing fine. We are supposed to get rain today, but so far it has been just a light shower, not enough to settle the dust. I had bought some flower bulbs and got those in the flower bed today. I got some purple iris. Those should be a pleasant change of color when they bloom.
If we don't get more rain tonight I think tomorrow I will try to weed my walking onion bed. It has lots of lil spring weed thingys coming up all over the place. I have some regular onion sets and I think maybe I will plant some of those in the bed as well for green onions and maybe some lettuce too. The asparagus bed needs to be weeded but the asparagus is not up yet and I don't dare go in there pulling weeds. I am sure from past experience I will pull up all the asparagus and leave the weeds. That's what I usually do in my flower beds. So I usually just mulch and hope for the best.
Not much else happening here. So till next time, blessings from the McGuire homestead.
