Spring Clean up Begins
Yesterday was a wonderful day to be outside tilling the soil in the garden. All five backyard beds are ready for planting. It won't be for another couple months before the warm weather plants like tomatoes and green peppers will be able to be planted. It was just nice to be able to be outside in the Spring sunshine working in the dirt.
|Garden Ready for Planting|
Here's a picture of the backyard with the garden ready for planting and the patio still under construction. With the nice weather upon us here I'll be outside more and more.
The main water tank has been sealed and will be hooked up to the rain barrel just in time for the rain. Tomorrow rain is predicted. Light rain what ever that is.
|First Harvest of the season|
Ha, here's the first harvest of the season. While digging up the garden beds, I came across these little gems. I planted some fall carrots last year but didn't really think that any made it. They were a little rubbery but quite tasty just the same. I had to savor their great fresh garden taste as it will be several months before any other harvest will be coming.
|Tulips and Daffodils|
The flowers are starting to begin their beautification of the world. Tulips, Daffodils, Iris, and Crocus are well on their way to blooming.
Crocus are already flowering but a little spotty. The first year they put on a great display but the second year down from the first and now this year very much down from the first year. I thought Crocus were supposed to get better with age but maybe these new hybrids are not long term flowers.
|Hard at work|
So until next time. Keep your tools sharp and your seeds dry until time to plant.
