Hmmm, well that arctic storm never really panned out like they advertised around here. No worries, we got some rain and today some more. Yet yesterday was beautiful and a great day to head out in the garden, tame that wild weed patch a bit more and harvest some bok choy for dinner.
I always enjoy looking at the colorful spring buds and think about how those pretty little things will be great big white peaches (foreground) and nectarines (background) soon enough.
Although if experience holds true, we’ll be seeing these white blooms turn into plums before the peaches and nectarines.
(the wild weed patch)
Our straw bale bed held up pretty good over winter. One side completely collapsed, no idea why, so we’ll need to get two more bales to make this last through it’s second summer.
I have been trying to sneak outside to weed whenever I can. There is so much to pull out and get ready for new plant life. This bed of seeds was planted before we came down with colds and flus so it has been rather ignored, so we’ll see if we get any plants out of it. It sure is nice to be out working on days like yesterday, under warm sun, hands in wet dirt.
What’s going on in your garden?
