Planted 18 tomato plants in barrels. Covering them at night for now as it still frosts some mornings. Chives were already in this one. Ooo, baked potato with sour cream and chives tonight!
Onions are coming up from last year - already in the garden. I have never been in a place where I could benefit from early food!
Strawberries are standing straight and tall.
Last year, we planted a raspberry bush..only to have the deer find it within a few days and chomp it to bits. That was before little cages. There was one there already and I fabricated another one..two bushes, deer proofed for now. Grow little bushes...GROW!
There used to be an entire row of apricot trees in a line with this one - the others were cut down before we arrived...this is the last one standing. I checked the tree yesterday...as I remembered the swarm of activity on the blossoms last spring, no activity, but today...
...the work has begun.
If you look closely, you can see little bees flying around and even a butterfly. Last year, we didn't get fruit...year before the fruit had ugly spots on it, this year - we are crossing our fingers.
Cherry tree will be bloomin' soon! Forgot to photograph the apple trees...will do that for you later.
Spring is a happenin thing here - a gradual welcome sight. It was a LOONG and nasty winter.
Where I Stand Sunday is an ongoing photo essay examining the different places I spend my life standing. Too often we take for granted the everyday places we spend our lives walking on. If you'd like to join me by posting a photo on Sunday of places you've been on your blog/photo hosting site/website, leave a comment on this post telling me where I can find you/your photo and I'll add a link to my sidebar so others can find you.
