Our potatoes and chard has finally made an appearance.
The onions and radishes are still growing well.
Our garden is headed for a productive season, so far. 😉
It’s Dogwood winter in our region. The dogwood trees are blooming lovely. The weather is cold, rainy and messy, but at least it’s heading towards warmer clear days.
Here’s wishing you all a sunshine filled weekend!
The weather has been cold and hot and cold and hot and no wonder they call this time of year “pneumonia weather”. The sun makes it’s appearance from time-to-time, not too much time mind-you, it wouldn’t want us to get spoiled to enjoying it. Last frost it still some weeks away, so up and down the temperatures will continue to go.
We have a couple things making their appearance in the garden. The onions and radishes are always eager to be the first to start the season.
Even though our small garden looks sparse and sad, we know it won’t be too many weeks until it’ll start looking more greener and hopefully promising a harvest of vegetables.
Have a wonderful rest of the week!
We’ve planted a few more things in the garden: bright lights chard, icile radishes and yukon gold potatoes. So, along with the onions we planted last week, our garden is off to a good start I think.
3-18-2019, was 50°F, full of sunshine, yet quite cool and super windy. My husband thought it was a good day to start our garden. He brought home a bag of onions sets to start our gardening season off right.
We’ve decided not to have a very big garden. Just a few basic veggies to give us something to tend to and also enjoy the tasty rewards.
Onions are always our first crop to plant. They fair well during the goofy temperature changes until the weather calms down and evens out for the year.
I, however, do not fair well during the cooler and windy days, so I layered on some clothes, put on a knit-hat under my cap and my garden gloves and went out to help my fella start our garden.
I’m happy to have the onions planted and hopefully we’ll have a fresh mess for a nice 1st batch of bruschetta this May.
Wishing you all sunshine and happiness!
