Oh we’ve been wonderfully busy. It’s just been one of those times when you realize you need to stop admiring everyone else’s handiwork and get somethings done your self. There’s been digging and planting, sewing and knitting and filling out days with as much outside time as we can.
The garden is doing alright – the weather has been really inconsistent this spring so the spinach is loving it – the broccoli not so much. But something has been loving the broccoli – so I’m trying a trick I saw on ye ol’ Pinterest about surrounding the plants with plastic forks to details munchers.
The onions are doing okay as well – I’ll be able to pull up some green onions any time and the potatoes all look okay so far.
The biggest things going on in the garden this year is flowers! I love my peonies, but they only last until about mid-June so I’ve been adding some spots of color. Pink and Purple Beebalm in the front yard. Happy yellow Coreopsis, “Moreno” and “Chocolate Orange” Black-eyed Susans and “Bloomtime” Bellis in the back. The hydrangea bush looks like it might give us some small blooms this year and as usually the hostas are planning a hostile take over along with their allies the Raspberry patch.
Oh, and yes that booger has Dalek pants…. more to come on the sewing explosion later!
Linking up the Clan for a garden tour.
