Two weeks ago the Fitz Fam commenced a garden overhaul! After harvesting all the arugula, rainbow chard, lettuce and radishes (leaving the carrots, leeks and cabbages to keep on growing), we prepped the beds for some new additions: seven heirloom tomato plants (including a GREEN ZEBRA! and CHEROKEE PURPLE!), a slew of herbs, one bell pepper, a zucchini and 260 onions!

Mom preps soil in the herb bed.

Pops looks in while Mille (longingly) looks out.

Today Mom and I planted the last of the sweet, red and yellow onions and we ripped up a shrimpy, disheveled-looking cabbage to make room for the bell pepper.

I can't wait to eat maiwa kumquats and striped tomatoes in April!

with the last cold days behind us...

...I tore out all the spinach, rainbow chard and arugula and planted SEVEN tomato plants yesterday. It's almost 90 degrees in Tucson today (ugh), but I'll be pleased when we're roasting tomatoes and eating Corn & Pesto Crunch salads in April!

So long, snowy mountain tops!
