Garden update

No animal pictures today. Just food for the eyes and stomach or at least our future stomachs.  🙂

I moved all the tiny plants from the basement garden outside to the picnic table where they can absorb a bit of sunlight and soak in the rain showers we are expecting today.



Just a few more weeks and I should be able to move at least some of these guys into the garden. The tenders (IE: peppers and tomatoes and heat loving flowers like Zinnias) will have to wait until Memorial Day weekend.

Just a few “flats” on the front porch that didn’t get moved to the back picnic table.

In years past I’ve been fooled into thinking I could plant tenders out earlier than the last week of May only to be completely discouraged by an unexpected frost. Followed by death and destruction of plantlettes.


So we wait.

The cruciferous veggies can take the cold and wet. But the babies are too small yet. SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURES

All can wait for just a few more weeks. We must be patient. True spring will come to the mountains. It always does. It just takes us a little longer than most. But that’s one of the reasons we like living here~ we are different than the rest of the world. Right? Right? (crickets)

On another note~ look at this! SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURES

The Zinnias have erupted! I planted these on Friday evening and now look! They are coming to life! In just 3 days!

Gives a garden/ farmer a smile on her face!

  1. It sounds like you’d be better off growing ducks than chickens! Do you have predator problems this time of year with your pigs and chickens?
