Finally we are above 40 degrees! Slow start here but have starts inside. The peas, radishes and pak choy like the colder weather. The tulips were great this year (had to replant last fall... the older ones were 20 years old!) One disturbing trend is there are hardly any bees... seen some carpenter bees, a few bumble bees but no other small bees around the pear tree. Don't think we will have much fruit this year. Hope this is not due to bee colony die offs....

Spring at Last

Finally getting going here. The garden has been planted with snow peas, radishes and pak choy. Inside starting are: Mammoth Basil, Roma Tomato, Salad Slicer Cucumber, Cup of Sun Nasturtiums, Lilliput Zinnia and Dwarf Bolero Margigolds. The Apricot blossoms have come and gone and the Pear is now in bloom. What's troubling is I don't see many bees active here... The fence boxes have been "squirrel-proofed" with black plastic grids secured with string or rubber bands. This prevents the squirrels from using the boxes as storage bins!

Spring can't come too soon here. The greens are going very strong in the Aerogardens. Peas, chard and pak choi are seed starting now to be transplanted outside later in March.

February 2019

Time to start the cool weather sprouts, chard, pak choy, spring greens, radishes, snow peas. No shadow for groundhog so hopefully spring will be early. Below is a picture of the new Led Light Aerogardens being used to start spring greens...These will be transplanted when it gets warm enough. Other vegetables are being started in peat Jiffy Strips.

The garden moved inside for the winter. It includes, Rosemary, Hibiscus, Palm, Amaryllis, orchids, Hydrangea, Begonia, Christmas Cactus, Bamboo, sugar cane, Ti Plant, Aloe, etc. Tulips and spring vegatables are being started here.
