Garden Roundup

   Roma tomato in the early morning sunshine.


 New growth on the Bay plant.


 I always grow petunias. The scent reminds me of my grandmother. She grew them every year.


 Clematis.


 Cilantro/Coriander flowering.


The main garden.


 Cucumbers and beans. I put up fencing around them in hopes to keep the groundhog and rabbits out.


Pickling cukes.
 
 
We finally finished planting the garden. I fed everything with fish emulsion and liquid seaweed. Yesterday it rained. Perfect timing! We're expecting rain for the next several days. Afterwards, we'll mulch the plants with leaves that we've been hauling from town.
 
It feels so good to be gardening again. This time of year, I live and breathe gardening. My Etsy shop has been put on a back burner this past month, but I hope to get back in the swing of things come June.
 
Until next time.....

The Spring gardens took a beating from the strong storms that passed through here recently. Some things got flooded. Only time will tell if they make it or not. It's getting to be close to impossible to harvest a Spring garden. The weather has been wild these past few years. At least we can replant these crops in the fall.
 
I've been busy feeding and weeding and tilling and thinning and transplanting and planting and and and. I do love this time of year!
Until next time.....
