A couple weeks ago I transplanted my sensitive plants outside before the last frost date.
Yes. That is risky, proven by the 2 nights with a freeze warning.
Yes. I am an outlaw, a rebel. Living on the edge. That is who I am. Patience is not my strength.
Thankfully it looks like we made it through the cold nights. I had everything covered really well and it seemed to do the trick.
Warmer days are ahead!
Tomato. You look fabulous. Don’t go changin’, to try to please me.
Well… an actual tomato would be nice.
I was most worried about these guys. They are super sensitive to the cold.
Am I crazy that I love the smell of the tomato plant? It’s not a nice sweet smell. It is very earthy, and maybe that is why I like it so much.
When you start to experience the smell of your garden, then the fact that you and nature are working together to create food really comes alive.
I sowed the Sugar Ann Snow Peas directly into the garden a few weeks before the last frost. I took this picture of them 1 week ago.
Just look at them now.
The Lettuce Mix is doing amazing.
I think you will be seeing a salad photo coming very soon to a blog near you.
It is almost to beautiful to eat.
I think I will have my wife harvest this. I don’t think I can cut them. We have gotten very close, I raised them from seed ya know.
The Zucchini germinated quickly. In just a few days.
These plants grow really fast and get really big. They are growing like weeds.
Did I just insult my zucchini?
Herbs are popping up. You have to make a little room for herbs in the garden.
You will thank me later.
We won’t be eating this. This is also not in the vegetable garden. But, I think it is worthy of making the blog.
It is a Japanese Maple tree that I bought on clearance for $10. It was just about dead at the end of last season.
This tree is easily over $150 at the nursery when healthy.
As you can tell it is doing great. All it needed was a little love, and I saved a bundle.
I had to show you a picture of the Phlox we have growing.
Just look at that picture and tell me there is no God!
Have a great week,
