Our started vegetable plants await planting. Low temperatures during several upcoming nights come uncomfortably close to freezing so we are holding off. For now, we bring them out during the day to harden them off.
The rosemary (upper centre) will stay in its pot as will the lemongrass (upper right).
It is a little hard to see the seven asparagus spears in our small ‘spare grass’ patch. We have already enjoyed several fresh spears. The strawberries are starting to flower (though you cannot see the flowers in this image). The haskap bush in the background has flowered and should set fruit soon.
Feeding songbirds has the side effect of birds dropping seed throughout our yard, which results in volunteer sunflowers popping up. We generally let them pop up and thrive or not. This volunteer adds cheer to the middle part of the vegetable garden.
We were very pleased to discover that all 38 garlic cloves we started last fall made it through the winter. Presuming they make it to the fall we should have a good supply to plant as well as a lot for cooking. And there are the scapes to look forward to using.
Our garden is about 8′ x 20′ and when you are as talented as Faye, you can pack quite a bit into such a compact space. Here are two views, one from each end. Come look, and please feel free to identify as many plants as possible. Go ahead give it a try!
