My Birthday Weekend

I got a lot of work done in the garden this past week...radishes, scallions,swiss chard, and beets
all got planted.

There was time for a coffee outside while the kids played.

Reading by the fire..

We started tomatoes and green beans inside and I will have to get out and get pictures of

the asparagus, lettuce and peas all coming up nicely.What is coming up in your garden?

What do you have planned? New crops? Anything you decided not to grow this year?

Best birthday gift this year? Farmer Dad and the Princess captured the Ground Hog and

entered him in the "Ground Hog Protection Plan". I beg for him to set the trap every year,

and then feel terribly guilty when the little thing is caught and squeaking in the have a heart.

I am sorry I can not post a pic of the capture, the very nature of the relocation plan demands

the utmost privacy. ;-)

Happy Birthday to you!

Your gardens are so much further ahead than mine. All I can mention are the self planting perennials. Some garlic, fennel, hops (boy do we have hops), lemon balm, chives, lots and lots of flowers popping up.
If it wasn't raining right now, I'd be transplanting my strawberries into their new raised beds, then sprinkling them with lettuce and spinach. I should also get those dang peas into the ground. Should have done it yesterday, though with all this rain, they'd have probably washed away.

I love your space here, and those are beautiful inspiring pictures. Glad to know you're still out there, my friend, making beautiful things grow.
