Spring Gardening

Yum
One of the things I love about spring is the garden. Bob's staff at Lewis and Clark gave Bob a gift certificate to Longfellow's Nursery, one of our favorite places, when Bob's father passed aweay and we purchased this garden center with that gift certificate. We decided on this garden center because Bob's dad loved gardening and grew wonderful produce.

I am harvesting spinach and lettuce. Last night we had our first garden salad and it was so good. With Bob's pork loin roast and roasted acorn squash, it was a wonderful meal!

The potatoes are looking great and so is the mint. Our cabbages are developing nicely, too!

I hope your spring gardens are producing. In this wet weather, it is hard to get anything going.

Look who else loves the garden...

  5. Hi Terri! Your garden looks like a fun place to spend time!! My "trash can" potatoes are doing well, so are the onions. My strawberries have blossoms (although it's painful, I am plucking them since it's their first year). I hope to get my drying tomato plants into the dirt this weekend. That's about all I can do until we get our yard put back together. Oh, and I have my herbs...basil, chocolate mint, chives, rosemary and maybe (if it comes back) oregano.

    LOVE the bottle tree!!!!

  6. That looks like a wonderful way to garden. Handy if one doesn't have a lot of space and upright so that a gal doesn't have to bend so much. I could get used to it. (We have a Longfellow's gardening center in our corner, too. I love going there. It's not a chain is it? Just a coincidence...)
