and 12 brussel sprouts. We added deer and rabbit protection.
I think we might need to get netting too.
Our Spring Kitchen garden is planted. The peas have their bamboo trellis to grow on. The lettuces and spinach and chives are in.
The chives are perennial
and will take a year to become established.
Our turnips sprouted this morning.
We planted the seed on March 17th.
I have flowers in bloom.
The hyacinth are from forced Winter bulbs from two years ago.
I planted the ones from this past winter. Next year they should bloom. The smell is heavenly.
While walking I saw this tree in bloom. It looks to be a Magnolia of some sort. Gorgeous.....
I am adding to my herb garden this year.
This silver edge Lavender is so pretty.
I planted two clumps to see how it does.
All around the yard I have daffodils.
Over the last 30 plus years I have divided the clumps.
I shall divide once again after they have ripened off.
They are part of my cutting garden.
I like to have cut flowers on the kitchen table.
I have decided to grow a French herb garden in pots for April
and in May plant all the herbs out in the gardens.
The French Thyme smells wonderful.
It will grow behind the kitchen sink until danger of frost is over.
I planted two pots of French Sorrel.
They will go on the hearth.
The nursery said French Tarragon will be in next week.
I have a pot ready for it.
Our Kale is a perennial.
It is coming up just fine.
We are trying a few different vegetables
this year too.
The Kitchen Garden is my focus this season.
I am looking forward to dinner from the garden.
I am planning to purchase a mandolin. I am doing my research.
I have been using my Mother's old one and it is no longer sharp.
It was in her kitchen in the 1940's.
Good tools last a very long time.
We went on an outing to purchase our seed potatoes.
I picked up a flat of pansies and violas.
I did up pots of flowers for the kitchen and livingroom.
Once the weather warms I will plant them outside.
For now I have lovely Spring flowers in the house.
They brighten my mood.
We made a special stop at the flag shop.
We bought a few parade flags and stands for our dinner party and
a large flag to fly outside.
I am smitten with Wales. I am smitten with their flag.
We are celebrating Wales this March.
I always celebrate dragons!
