What’s growing on

I truly enjoy this time of year when every walk around the house and trip out to the garden is a surprise of new growth.

There haven’t been any new takers on the free rent offer in the gourds.

Baby peaches…


I have been moving most of our seedlings to their permanent summer homes. The tomatoes are next to get transplanted.

I just feel downright geeky getting excited over having fruit on the vine in the greenhouse. This is my first year using this tool so it’s a ton of fun to have been able to move along with our garden at such an accelerated rate.

We just planted our greenbeans and the potatoes have yet to break through the mulch but I did take a peek at one end of the rows and they will soon be busting through. I’m still hauling in loads of compost for the area that we will block in our sweet corn.

    Kiddo and I just read this together. We both think you’ve got an awesome garden growing on, and that greenhouse ROCKS! I’m really glad that you identified that plant as columbine… the one you gave us is flowering too, today. One of these days I’ll learn the proper names. Still enjoy them though. :)Ron

    Karl..Happy spring to you as well. I’m wondering why I waited so long to build one. Besides all the advantages of extended seasons with the greenhouse, it is an awesome place to sit out and enjoy a cold spring rain while staying toasty.Ron.. I couldn’t agree with ya’ll more. Glad to hear everyone is back where they belong.peace
