My garden is looking pretty and I’ve pulled a lot of weeds to get it to look that way!
We’ve had a lot of rain – like every other day. We’ve also had a roller coaster ride of temperatures, from low 40′s to mid-80′s. It keeps going up and down!
When it’s cool, I make sure I get out in the backyard and get to work!
I’ve had to mow the lawn weekly, unlike last spring/summer when we had the drought and I didn’t have to mow at all!
My neighbor’s lawn service shaved my Columbine flowers to the quick last summer but fortunately they came back full bloom. A resilient flower that mimics a resilient town in Colorado. When they spread out some more, I will transplant some to the front yard.
Half of the seeds I sowed in my vegetable garden died due to frost. FROST! In MAY! So, I went out yesterday and planted more seeds. My Cilantro survived though and it’s the first time I planted Cilantro. Let’s hope there are no more frosts!
I have plants growing in my front yard also. Two of them, I don’t know where they came from. One looks like a fir tree and it’s about 4 inches tall. When it gets a little bigger, I’ll transplant it to my backyard. The other plant is a common spider plant. I transplanted it indoors last summer and the plant died. So, I was shocked to see another spider plant out front in the same spot where I removed the first one! The more I think I know about plants, the more they surprise me.
If you’re not growing a garden, you’re missing a lot of fun, good exercise, and Vitamin D. It’s never too late to get started.
