The garden has really started to come alive with these warmer days and spring rains. Spring crops are coming along in spite of a hard freeze a few weeks ago that did some damage. Last Friday and Saturday we spent much of the holiday weekend planting seeds and transplanting summer crops that I started indoors many weeks ago. It's always a little difficult to put the little seedlings that I've nurtured and cared for out in the potentially wild weather! I've been watching them carefully since transplanting and am happy to report they survived the process beautifully. I'm keeping a close eye on the weather this weekend, though, because it looks like we could see some hail which is so damaging to fragile seedlings. I will cover as many of them as I can with jars and milk jug greenhouses to prevent damage to my summer crops. Oh the joys of spring! Here's a peek at the garden:
|Bell peppers survived transplanting beautifully. Time to mulch!|
|Sweet peas are looking sweet.|
|So many happy strawberry blooms!|
|The garlic bed is getting big.|
|Egyptian Walking onions are putting up scapes.|
|New growth on the grape vines. Do you see the tiny grape clusters? (click to see the photo larger)|
|The grape trellis is filling in|
