Wednesday Winter Sprouts

The temperatures has been in the 50°s and high 60°s here lately. The daffodils, lilies and rose are trying to make their yearly debue. Unfortunately, the temperatures are rumored farecast to start dropping and the new growth will probably be bit back. Fortunately, the temperatures will warm up again soon and the new growth will began again.

Daffodils startingto grow

My daffodils have had enough winter. They’re trying to grow now. I hope they’ll be blooming soon. And then, I suppose, we may have another snow. I say this because I was raised with the saying, “snow lays at least once on daffodil blooms.”

Wishing everyone warm weather
and positive signs of Spring.

Spring Signs

0-buttersI went for a walk to see the signs of spring during our oddly warm days. I was surprised to see a buttefly. The weather has been gorgeous. The trees and flowers are budding and growing.
We could still have some freezing weather this winter. It’s a long time until last frost.
My mini-daffodils are blooming and there is an old saying about ‘snow falling on daffodils once’… but since mine aren’t the classic kind, they may not count. Meanwhile, we’ll enjoy the pleasant weather while it’s here.0-dafi

Wishing you all a pleasant week.

2016 Gardening Update 2

belpepersedlingsWhile out seed shopping, my husband saw a pack of mixed colors of bell peppers. One of the colors is purple and since we’ve never seen a purple pepper, he bought the pack of peppers. The pepper seeds are all mixed up and we can’t be sure which pepper colors is which, so my husband bought a 72 pellet tray for me to start them in. Almost all the seeds have sprouted. We’re going to have a huge pepper patch (and there’s no guarantee that we’ll have a purple pepper since there’s 30 seeds left over.lol)
The seedlings won’t be ready for transplanting for a couple weeks or so. I hope they continue to grow and most of them will survive transplanting. Now what to do with all the peppers. lol

IMG_7767aI bought a tray of small daffodils to plant for next Spring. I’ve never seen any daffodil blooms so small. I hope they survive and bloom pretty next Spring.IMG_7767b

Our radishes and onions are growing pretty well in the big garden. It’s hard to get a good photo of them at this stage of their growth, but I tried anyhow.

IMG_7894My husband has the garden tilled up and waiting for the right time and weather for planting. We’re supposed to get some rain, so He’ll have to till it again before we plant.

wasptrapOn a bit of a crafty note, I made a wasp trap out of a cola bottle, duct tape and put some Hawaiian punch in it. I’m happy to report that it works. I plan to set several of these up and hang a few to try and keep the wasp population under control around our home.

Wishing you all Happy Spring Gardening!gardening
