Ok...I have been sick for a few days. Today I woke up and felt better. It's going to be 53F outside. So, I go out and mosey around the garden. All of the garlic is popping up. The rose bushes are starting to green up. OMG.... I think winter is gone... Finally.
I noticed all of my mint is starting to turn green. You know what that means..... time for fresh brewed ice tea with mint....
Of course, this year I have to expand the garden. Hahaha... every gardener knows this is part of the sickness. You have to plant more every year. This year I am growing Leeks and trying to make an Asparagus bed.
I have 2 people I am seriously mentoring this year. I hope to do a few stories about it as we progress. I have to make them both buy iPods..LOL. Mandatory equipment for the garden.
Out of the 40 Peppadews I started it looks like 37 have germinated. I'll take it.
Hope everyone is getting into their garden mode. It's going to be a good season. I can tell.
