Walk through the garden 4/19/17

Could it be?!?! Our first Wednesday walk through the garden of 2017. Even though not much is going on until the end of May (our last frost date), we can see the start of a great gardening season!

The garlic is growing nicely! And I just added some compost around them to help feed them a touch

The onions and strawberries growing in the raised bed are coming along!

And I was pretty shocked to see that some of my potatoes have made their way above the soil already!

My Granny’s rhubarb is looking great!

I really thought that since the grape vines didn’t really grow last year well, that they wouldn’t come back. But look at how healthy it looks:

And the mister had taken the wheels off of an old wagon that was falling apart years ago. Well, I decide to use it for a salad garden. In it I have arugula, lettuce and spinach.

The boy was beyond delighted to find some frog or toad eggs in the tiny pond (puddle) above the garden:

I will leave you with a picture of me splitting my hive, since I found a pretty nice capped queen cup. I got the future majesty and some nurse bees to move into a new box. (this was a first and I’m hoping it turns out well!)

I hope that you are seeing lots of signs of Spring where you live!

    • I know! I get kind of jealous when I see people with their plants in the ground! It’s getting warm here too, but we still get frosts in May and it’s a major gamble to put anything in the garden in early May. 😊
