My garden’s starting to wake up after another long winter. Check it out:
Our new lemon tree is still inside, but it’s acclimated nicely. See all the buds? It’s absolutely covered.
The radishes have started to come up.
And the spinach has started to come up, too. We had to net that bed to keep the squirrels out.
Our wintersown broccoli is doing great.
The raspberry cane that I just planted has broken dormancy. See that little tuft of leaves at the top?
And the new blueberry bushes seem to be happy, too.
Our apricot bushes are blooming for the first time. Will this be the year that we finally get apricots?
My daughter’s cabbage transplanted nicely. If she wins the cabbage growing contest, she’ll get a $1,000 scholarship. Hey, it’s worth a try.
The daylilies that I rescued from a curb pile last year are coming up. I can’t wait to see what color they are.
And that’s just a small portion of what’s going on in my garden at the moment. The cherry and apple trees have broken dormancy, and I just got the potatoes and peas planted. Can’t wait for warmer days and homegrown meals.
