Spring Garden Check-In

One of the things I enjoy about spring is walking through the garden and checking on the progress of all the little plants we have so carefully planted or cared for during the winter.


Beans popping up in little rows...
Dumpling peaches, fuzzy and green...
Rhubarb blushing and begging to be made into a pie...
Fresh herbs, parsley,oregano,thyme, basil and rosemary,
just a handful turns any meal into a gourmet meal...
Zucchini plants, we only need three, which ones will make the cut...
One lonely artichoke...
A barrel full of potato plants...
Nasturtiums, did you know they are edible?
Radishes...
A simple blossom on a pepper plant...
A wine barrel full of hydrangeas, I hope the blueing agent works...
The viburnum tries so hard to be lovely in our too hot climate...
Tomatoes, it looks like we will have a bumper crop again...
Lemons, we haven't needed to buy lemons in 20 years...



The very first blueberry was picked yesterday. How many more do I need for a cobbler?

What a beautiful garden you have again this year! Would love to be able to go outside like you do and pick my herbs and vegetables for dinner. Enjoy!

Gosh, that looks great! Our garden only has weeds and some garlic. We're still getting lows in the 20's here... I'll have to enjoy yours while I'm waiting for the weather to warm up here!

Lovely garden, isn't it lovely to see it all growing and developing and then eating it fresh?!
