My Cabbage Patch Doll.


Today was a beautiful day! The sun was shining, the birds singing. It was warm! Actually and truly warm! We spent the morning cleaning up around the veggie beds. Weeding, cutting the grass, making everything look nice.

Penny makes her rounds.

Spotted on patrol today, Ladybugs rocks: 1, Cherry tomatos: 0.

The strawberry plants are starting to flower, looking strong and healthy in their new homes. The Alpine strawberries are beautiful. A great shock of lime green against the raised beds. They are doing well. Despite the recent cold snaps and late snow/hail/pelting rain, the divides I made in early spring are holding their own. Two very large bushes have become 6 small plants. Success!

The Strawberry plants, pre-clean up.

In other victories of the garden, this year we will be our first harvest of Asparagus. You should only harvest asparagus after it’s 3rd spring in the garden. While the wait for them to mature is long. The benefit is an abundant crop of delicious and expensive vegetables, right from your garden. One of the first harvests of the year. I’m almost giddy in anticipation!

Asparagus is a long term investment in your garden.

I’m not the only one excited. The kids love anything they can pick or pluck from the garden. Strawberry’s are a classic, but cherry tomato’s and peas are equal a hit with the kids!

She's never met a tomato she hasn't liked!

So while I play with the pea netting and bamboo poles, she takes the afternoon off. Finding the slide more to her amusement. Her gardener hard at work.

The peas are poking out of the dirt. Soon they will create a wall of fresh green pods!

It was a nice day in the garden.

    I really want to grow peas this year…not sure why 🙂

    I guess that means we should get cracking with our little plot of dirt
