Garden Update #3

Enough of the snow already! Though, there is still a little bit that remains from the last few days, the snow is quickly melting and the greenery is returning. I've had to keep most of the garden indoors until today as the temperatures at night were dipping well below freezing. The beets and carrots have finally been able to go outdoors for the first time since they've sprouted. Of course, they'll be coming back indoors for the evening! Here's a look at the weekly wrap up:
