|Potatoes and onions growing!|
Any self respecting gardener knows though you plant before spring gets here! Potatoes and onions are always planted in late February to early March. These are both root crops (which means they grow--their fruit below the ground) so they can take a little more cold than tender veggies that are more sun loving!
But today's crop is known as Lambs Quarter.

|Just pinch-off the top|
It springs up around the edges of my family's garden. One family member remembers picking it out of the ditch as a child! You just pinch-off the young tender leaves. You leave the plant for regrowth. (Its cousin is spinach.)
