The signs are here that spring is near. Well, the peach blossoming now is a little alarming. They don't usually come out this early. The apricot does but there are now cherry trees with blossoms in downtown Jersey City too.

March Peach Bloom

Indoors, the plants have been going all winter. The aerogarden is producing plenty of lettuce. The geraniums are happy in the south eastern window as is the Christmas Cactus.

Garden Recap Here are some shots from late fall into the winter. The most striking is of the rose we had in JANUARY! Seeing Cherry Trees blooming on Christmas Eve was another tell. Something very odd is going on here inspite of what the climate change critics say. Just look around you. Also included here are harvests of Baby Bok Choy (one of the new faves here), tomatoes and our favorite Dwarf Bartlett Pears. The moon on September 27 was amazing to see.

Spring finally arrived. But here it is June and it's 55 degrees out?? Am I the only one noticing that the weather is getting very erratic?? The containers this year contain salad mix, baby bok choy, basil, tomatoes, chives, garlic chives, cucumbers, peas, peppers and sunflowers. Here is a gallery of what has happened in the garden so far this year.

Was very busy this year with life but here are a few pictures of how great the garden was this year. Showing are various harvests made from the raised bed box and various containers. The garden gargoyles who "protect" the garden are also shown. Harvests from this small organic urban garden yielded about 3-4 harvests a week of greens, herbs, small tomatoes and peppers etc. Not a huge amount but enough to add to a healthy diet.

Not much writing going on here, because too much has been going on in the garden. Volunteering in a community garden too. My hands feel better in the dirt than on the keyboard right now. The peppers and tomatoes are going pretty slowly this year, even with the late start. It has been pretty cool this year, not the usual weeks of sweltering heat. Have a look at the state of the garden so far.
