Are There Vegetables Growing in the Garden?
Posted by Sharkey
The March issue of Martha’s magazine, Living, arrived and I was struck by the beauty of the cover. If you haven’t seen it, it’s a bountiful harvest of freshly picked vegetables. I really love the garden and seeing that photo got me really thinking about our amazing vegetable garden here at the farm.
1 Oh, what a colorful cover of the new March issue of Martha Stewart Living. Does this mean we have vegetables in the garden already?
2 Oh Sharkey, you're so foolish. Your dreams of vegetables are weeks and weeks away.
3 That's right, Sharkey. Have you even looked outside recently?
4 Dude, the ground is still frozen! You better have Uncle Carlos take you to the vegetable isle of the supermarket.
5 Oh drat - how very distressing. This has been one long winter and fresh produce from Martha's garden is still just a dream.
6 There must be something that can be done to help speed things along.
7 Hey, wait! Let me have a look at that magazine cover again.
8 Just as I thought! It's time to START PLANTING!!!
9 Yeah - It really is still winter.
10 Hey, Crow! How much longer until spring?
12 Well, that wasn't so helpful. I'll just head down to the vegetable garden and greenhouse area.
13 The vegetable garden is a barren, frozen tundra. Let me pop into the greenhouse and see what's happening in there.
14 This looks hopeful!
15 Yes! It looks like someone has been busy planting seeds.
16 And here's proof! Seed packets and plant markers.
17 And the package says Martha Stewart! I remember hearing something about a new line of seeds at Home Depot!
18 Thank you for showing all of this to me, Shaun! I see you've been busy preparing for when this seemingly eternal winter is finally over.
19 It's comforting to know that you are on top of the situation and that come springtime, the vegetable garden will be in good hands. Thank you, Shaun!!!
