March in the Garden

We are now well past our average last frost date here in East Texas, and color is flushing everywhere. In the vegetable garden, Spring plants are thriving as summer plants are germinating and sending out leaves.
Onion, peas, carrots, asparagus, calendula and other herbs, perennials, lettuces, kale, and more are making the garden so lovely I almost hate to start harvesting. But this week we'll start enjoying lettuces. We've enjoyed arugula and herbs nearly all winter. As soon as this last round of sprouts is up, I'll put down the much-needed mulch that will protect the soil structure and moisture levels during our hot Texas summers. 
Has Spring spring where you are?
