Vegetable seedlings make an appearance: a photolog


"Adopt the pace of Nature. Her secret is patience." Ralph Waldo Emerson


Exciting times (for us at least) in the garden.  The vegetable garden has taken shape.   We've advertised the giveaway heirloom tomato plants on our social media and friends will start dropping by to pick these up.

A photolog from this weekend in our gardens.

We added chicken wire to the fence around the vegetable garden to foil the rabbits.

I rejuvenated the strawberry bed last fall so, sadly,
I don't think we'll get many this year.
Needed to be done.
Fortunately, Target sells some mighty fine strawberries. 

The potatoes planted around Eastertime pop out!

Radishes, mostly for my Daddy

Last year's parsley self-seeded a very fine patch

Peas, beans, and purple-hulled peas

The beginning of what we hope will be a fine heirloom tomato harvest

Our friend Colleen Reinke came and picked up some of the giveaways
Some of the last of last season's marinara is for supper!
Valerie N., recognize the beer cozey?
Found on my patio Sunday afternoon.
 I wonder which species flew over and lost this at that moment.
 I have some guesses.  Do you?

Asparagus bed was re-done last year so we have to leave it alone this year.

Sunday Jim planted the sweet potato seedlings
Bloomerang lilac bush is a little sparse this year, but so very fragrant






My favorite watering can ever.  I like to buy high-quality goods and then they last for a very long time.  The watering can is made in England.  It makes me think happy thoughts of English gardens when I use it.
Chillin' time
