Cool-Weather Garden

A few weeks ago, I started buying plants at the local farmer’s markets for my first-ever cool-weather garden.

Bamboo Coyotes at Eagle market

Kale, chard and spinach will make tasty salads springtime salads. Broccoli and Brussels sprouts for use as wholesome side dishes. Shallots and onions will flavor dishes raw and cooked.

Rainbow chard from Next Generation Organics at Downtown Boise market

Meet one of my helpers. She can loosen the soil and add fertilizer at the same time.

Wire fencing keeps curious (and hungry) hens out of the new garden.

Hopefully, the beginning of something beautiful
