Sacramento Bee readers share their gardening adventures.
Our virtual and real spring gardening got off to a strong start. Several readers shared the details of their early spring activity online at our new Facebook page.
"Harvesting lots of lettuces, green onions, cilantro, cabbages, spinach, thyme, rosemary, other herbs, oregano, Meyer lemons, Eureka lemons, navel oranges, clementines, last of the broccoli and bok choy," reported Laurie Meyerpeter. "Snow peas are just starting. New seedlings are sprouting for next summer's garden in the back of the house.
"Although not garden stuff, it's also egg season," she added, "and the hens have begun laying eggs like crazy as the days lengthen."
With the help of his wife and young son, Micky Huertas Reynaga got his raised vegetable beds in shape. "It's a nice family activity," he said.
His garden in Plymouth already has plenty of spring onions plus lots of lettuce and other greens. (See more photos on the SacBee Garden Facebook page.)
