Welcome Spring

Untitled

I've had the spring feeling for a couple of weeks now, with the warmth of the sun melting the snow, wearing summer shoes and less clothing, the woodpecker is back and hacking away early in the morning - one does not need an alarm clock ;). But it's not real spring until we have found the first
coltsfoot.

The snow has melted fast due to the sun and wind. But it's still cold - we woke up to -3 C this morning. So there is not much growing yet... But I have lots of plans for my vegetable garden this year.

Inside some of the seeds I planted last week has sprouted :) This is sugar peas.

Hopefully the rest of the seeds will start sprouting soon too.

Do you have a vegetable garden?

  1. Growing nothing here I'm afraid altho I was thinking about some really small herb plants b/c I'm almost buying certain ones every week or so. That yellow flower amidst the brownish-blackish-grey is a great pic. Loved seeing the possibilities of your future veggie garden.

  2. Hoping to get some seeds in over this weekend. Although our winter hasn't been as cold as yours, it has been very wet, cold and long here. The spring sunshine has been most welcome. Happy gardening!

  3. Love reading your blog. I live in Alaska and have similar weather. Bought a house last year, so am hoping to get a vegetable bed or two going here. Your soil looks like ours...rocky an of poor quality. Think this year we will buy starters from the green house.

  4. We have such different concepts of Spring! It has been in the 40s at night here, and I'm grumbling about how cold it is!

  7. We're going to have watering restrictions this year, so doesn't look like we will have a garden, but we do want to plant at least one container.
