We might have some more winter weather coming in this week. In addition to it getting really fornicating cold this week we also might have some more winter precipitation coming in too. I am so ready for spring to come now. I am so fornicating sick of winter. I need to get off my fat you know what and get riding my bike again. I need the exercise and I need to resume my nasty and disgusting habit of posting GoPro timelapse videos of my bike ride adventures.
well things are growing. I planted a bunch of Japanese painted ferns I did to know they were perennials and they are coming back well one is I don't see the others. they are sure nice looking I got sword ferns from a local seller on eBay dirt cheap just the root 20 of them for 30.00 I think but they did noting or only grew one frond last year this one did nothing at all but it looks like it is getting going. love these maiden hair fern this is a native one our new dwarf peach is flowering it's little heart out. this was just planted in January bought some bulbs and such last year they did not grow till this year our apple trees are supposed to be late fruiting trees so thought they would flower later but this is their first year so who knows. but the bees are not out that I have seen chins honey berry hopefully these taste good
SpoonfulOSugar posted a blog entry in Adventures with a Ladybird Herd - and other tales from the NorthSpring has finally, FINALLY sprung! I am so thrilled . . . even if it means we are starting thunderstorm season. My zucchini are starting to grow! Mr. Spoon planted the Garden Tower with lovely herbs: The trees are in bloom (top cherry, bottom crabapple): The wildflowers are blooming: And Pigeon is thriving! Oh Happy Days!!!
Yes! It is springtime, and it means garden time. Over the last few weeks I've been slowly spreading out the compost on the part of the garden we are using this year, and cleaning up a bit. Unfortunately my start-of-winter cleaning of the garden path didn't seem to help because it is covered in weeds again The weeds are flourishing too the grass has flowered already, which really sucks. So I still have to get stuff tidied up outside. But I have started sowing inside. yay! So far I have sown the following: melons - 3 sorts (one is a self harvested seed from an unnamed melon) peas - sugar snap and regular (sown in pots because the garden isn't ready yet apparently I have to wait until April Saturday the 7th - it's going to be a long time) broad beans paprika - mini orange, regular and pointy red ones chili peppers - jalapeno, habanero, serrano, hot banana, and Papecchia cucumber tomatoes - cherry, and 3 'regular' ones red cabbage lettuce okra (for the last time!) aubergines - normal, white ones and mini ones tomatillo (own seed, have no clue if it'll grow) celery pumpkin broccoli And this year the crazy stuff I'm going to attempt to grow: quinoa, sesame, sugar cane and ramsons Next month (aka tomorrow) I can start sowing/planting other stuff like: kohlrabi beans corn more melons squash/pumpkins mustard leaves silver-beet gherkins turnips beetroot onions garlic parsnip courgette carrots And even though those lists are long I still always feel like I'm forgetting something. And I really can't wait until my garden starts looking like this again: Well excluding the weeds
