|Can't stop the daffodils|
Well, it may be more accurate to say "Hello, mud season."
Maple sugaring season is done, and we've had some blue sky days, but it's still too wet to step foot into the garden to rake out the autumn leaves and winter sand from the plow trucks.
Thus, my gardening duties have been fairly light so far. It's still too wet to step foot into the garden to rake out the autumn leaves and winter sand from the plow trucks.
Here's an April garden report:
- I do have seedlings started in the "attic" above the woodstove.
- Most of the tomatoes have been repotted into larger pots.
- I planted one raised bed on Saturday with peas, beets, radishes, kale, chard, spinach and scallions.
- The chickens got to kick around in the back yard over the weekend.
- The daffodils have pushed up through a layer of leaves and are showing off their flower buds.
I've been trolling the Internet for some gardening and garden trellis ideas - Homegrown.org and Pinterest have been particularly helpful. I really want to do more with flowers and groundcovers this year and Pinterest is great for alluring garden landscapes. I've got a Pinterest board called Garden Inspiration, if you're interested to have a look.
