Readying the Garden

It is hard to believe that it will soon be time to plant our garden. 
This last weekend we cleaned up a bit of last year's mess.
There are even a few plants and herbs still producing from last year.
Parsley is still plentiful
 the Bell Peppers are still growing, although they are small.
 There are even a few hot peppers still ready to use in a chicken marinade.
 Paul picked a whole bucket of citrus, mostly lemons and grapefruit.

For 4 weeks we have been giving the seed potatoes a start at sprouting
and this weekend we planted our potatoes for the season. 
Three types, purple, Red La Soda and Yukon Gold.
I hope we have better luck than last year, when we didn't get a single potato.

My Valentine's Day tulips are still looking so pretty. I love tulips as they bend and grow to the light.

It's time to get out the seed catalogs and place my order for the spring planting.

Thanks for stopping by,

Green fingers too - we got one apple, one pear and a couple of blackberries last year - not so good!

I can't believe it! It looks like you have summer already!! Here I'm beginning to despair of ever making it to spring - we made it up to 1 degree for about 10 seconds this afternoon and at this rate the snow will never melt and we might see spring in June! Oh to live in a place where it's always summer - must be heaven!!!
