You know the nursery rhyme…
Mary, Mary quite contrary how does your garden grow? With silver bells and cockle shells and pretty maids all in a row.
Well my name is not Mary, and not much in my garden grows in rows… but there is certainly lots of growing going on which is pretty exciting!
Lettuces a plenty
Garlic making progress
There’s plenty of celery and the potatoes are getting bigger each day
A beautiful artichoke baby
Strawberries which I split up and replanted in three new beds are settling in and making progress… those lettuces are all self seeded, a tiny miracle right in my garden.
There’s also a few of these guys- but they get snapped up pretty quickly!
The Cavelo Nero has gone to seed but the flowers are so gorgeous I cant pull them out.
There is also plenty of borage and calendula brightening the garden (and bringing our friends the bees)
Not to mention lots of self seeded pansy and viola. A row of butter beans…
Some tomatoes just peeking over their shelter… still a bit cold but Im hopeful we will get a few early sweet 100’s from these before the main crop
These tomato seedlings are not ready to stay out overnight yet, still a few more weeks in the cozy mini greenhouse on the deck. Ill have to repot them this weekend tho
Ive decided to keep a seasons journal- starting with spring. Here’s what I have so far:
Still a bit more pressing to go…
My daughter wore those shoes at our wedding, the skirt marker is an amazing invention – a gift from my husbands great aunt, as is the crystal cake stand on the left. I crocheted the stones myself, and everything is sitting atop a Kauri china cabinet which was my Grandparents. Oops it needs a bit of a dust…
