We had an abundance of rain the other day, which made for perfect planting this weekend.
I love this time of year when things are going in and some of the early sprouters are ready for picking.
Tarragon, mint, chives, cilantro, and sage.
Early onions and leeks just about plump enough to harvest.
Most of all of the vegetables are in.
My peas are doing well, but I decided to sack the weed screen idea. It just wasn't working, and seemed to be more of a nuisance to keep the weed screen down in the wind.
Instead, I planted three rows about 10 inches apart and staked a little wire fence down in the middle.
Potatoes are up!
I can't wait to taste the first little buttery potatoes fresh from the dirt.
My sister in law and I are comparing notes and sharing flower seeds...growing a lot more to sell in the farm stand this summer.
I planted a few varieties of sweet peas from Floret and I can't tell you how thrilled I am to smell that first bloom.
Peonies are one of my favorite flower treasures and I picked up a couple more plants.
I am seriously considering planting a couple of rows. They are so enchanting and easy to maintain.
Included in the flower planting, will be another sunflower house.
The kids just have hours of fun.
I am planting it at the end of two raspberry rows....what a treat to walk down the middle, like a little road, eating berries all the way to the secret house.
Today is a busy one.
Pumpkins, corn, squash, zucchini, cucumbers, and melons are going in the ground.
As well as ALL of the flowers!
How about you?
