First pea bloom!

on Sunday, May 13, 2012

The first bloom in the pea patch! It seems every year we whine and worry things aren't looking good because, for some reason or another, things in the garden aren't "normal" or "on schedule". We just have to remember each year is different, whether it's hotter or colder, wetter or dryer than the previous couple of years, and maybe SOME of the plants aren't happy with it (like the fruit tree blooms this year), overall the plants are gonna grow. We were worried that the cool weather crops were going to freak out or die off (like some of the spinach and lettuce this year) with the crazy hot and cold weather, but it seems to all work out. It's just different each year...

What will things look like later this week?

on Tuesday, April 17, 2012

With temps dropping down and getting frosty this week, I wonder how all the flowers and buds will fare. The clematises and rose on the arch look like they want to bloom soon.

Snug as a bug in a...

Frost is in the forecast on and off for the next week, so growies are either crammed in a corner up against the house on the deck, or tucked away in the greenhouse, and in both cases covered up. The blueberries, which have flower buds on them, have also been wrapped. Fingers crossed everything makes it through ok!

Don't judge us!

The tomato seedlings I just potted up this weekend are looking pretty wimpy right now. Give them a week and I think they'll be looking much better - they just need to settle in and put out some new roots. They just got moved from the deck to the greenhouse - nights have been in the 50s and 60s but we're supposed to frost tonight. Blah!
