I started writing this post on Monday. But then I went and got all responsible and started working on my taxes. Now that they are completed it's time to play!
I spent the weekend doing more clean up and transplanting. The weekend was warm and sunny unlike the past two days. Raining and cool.
Lets take a tour and see what's growing now that spring is here.
All but two of my brussels sprouts bolted with the warm weather we had all last week . Click on photos for a larger view.
I still have hope for the two remaining plants. But they better kick it into gear because I will need to pull them in two weeks to plant the tomatoes.
About two weeks ago I was getting some garlic out of the cabinet when I noticed the ginger I had in there had sprouted. I had no idea how ginger grew so I googled it. Guess what? I planted it. Turns out they're easy to grow. We'll see.
My potted Nectarine tree is in full bloom. It's looking healthier than in previous years. This could be because I repotted it with fresh soil and food. Now if I can keep the squirrels from stealing all the fruit before I can get to them.
The raspberries seem to have grown over night...
They are starting to fruit.
About the time Jenn over at Gamine's Garden was trying to decide which apple tree she was going to buy I was also toying with the idea of getting an apple tree. I know I have no space for an apple tree let alone two. But I ordered them anyway. Yes I ordered two Columnar Apple Trees. More fruit to keep the squirrels away from. But I have three years before I have to worry about that.
Here is one of mine starting to bud out.
Bed 2 is looking so fine. The broccoli looks healthy.
The cucumbers seem to be adjusting to being moved out of the greenhouse and into the bed.
I even have one seed sprouting. Click on the photo to see it better.
Another view of bed 2. You can see the potatoes in the background.
One of the potato plants is starting to flower.
Other things blooming on the garden...
and in the greenhouse the Brandywine tomato....
I have a little garden shed on the side yard. It's a 2x7 but with all the stuff I cram into it you would think it was a 10x10
On Sunday I opened the doors to get something and it just exploded... Well not really but I couldn't find what I was looking for. What better time than to pull it all out and reorganize.
What was it that I came here for?.... I can't remember now but the next time I'll be able to find it.
I'll leave you with a photo taken from the kitchen door.
My next post... Avocado Tree?
