It’s the end of April, and we’ve had several gully-washer rain storms in the past two weeks. It makes me think of that old phrase, “April showers bring May flowers.” Because spring fever is now rampant in every hardiness zone, I thought the first post of May should be pictures of spring flowers. Some pictures were taken last year – like the eggplant flower in the picture above. Other pictures show what’s blooming in my garden now. Come enjoy!
Although it’s winter and the temperatures have dropped again here, there’s still a lot going on in my garden – both inside and out. Three days ago, I planted potatoes – Yukon Gold, fingerlings, and purple potatoes. With a total of 34 plants, I’m expecting quite the spud harvest this spring! My winter crops are growing and my seedlings are coming up under the grow lights. Come take a look!
Boy have things been busy this week here at my Sanctuary Garden! Not only do I have 14 raised beds that I’m tending outside, I now also have six flats of seeds and seedlings that I’m nurturing. The weather has cooled off since my last update with temperatures closer to average, so the growth of the outside veggies has slowed a bit. Yet, most of my winter crops now have their secondary (true) leaves. And seeds are already popping through the soil under my grow lamps! Come take a look!
