Got the Spring Gardening Itch yet? No?
I just have to share the photos from today’s walk around the garden. It screams Life! Spring! Color! Dare you to look and not think about planning or planting YOUR spring garden.
Today’s activities: pulling nettles, raking leaves, and figuring out what we are planting this spring.
It was wonderful to see this ladybug just hatching:
They are everywhere! Our companion planting has really paid off.
Oops, pulled a carrot instead of a weed! I didn’t think any of the carrots grew – it was sweet and delish!
Yess!! We will have blueberries. I bought one bush last year to see how it would grow in our yard. I think we’ll add 3 or 4 more.
We dug these up out of our “food not lawns” area out front. Threw a piece of it on the side yard for possible soil erosion issues, and it looks so pretty today:
Love purple and orange. Here’s some status:
Our lovely, loyal dwarf Anna apple tree :)
This grass is self seeding – it is popping up all over our backyard. I love it.
Cannot wait for strawberries!
Beets are growing, and a few are ready to pick. This was our first time growing beets. Only about 1/4 of them sprouted.
Saw this cute little red butt spider hopping around. Love spiders in the garden!
Our chile manzano’s first Spring blossom.
I sure hope you’ve enjoyed this walk around the garden as much as I have!
