Our garden is really taking off. We’ve had two harvests of greens. Have you ever eaten baby Calendula greens? They are pretty tasty. I planted them for the flowers but I had to thin them out.
None of the winter squash I planted seeds for made it, but I had a few volunteer in the compost, so I planted the best one in the garden. We’ll see how it does. I dressed it with wool pellets to keep the slugs off it.
The flax is now a thick carpet of green.
Nasturtiums, Morning Glories, and Moonflowers in my flower basket.
I dead headed the roses and transplanted the Gerber Daisies (a Mother’s Day gift) into the garden, because flowers! This is my first bouquet, other than the lilacs. I found out Alys Fowler has a new book out, and I’m a big fan, so I ordered it from my local book store.
We’ve had a cold snap but everything seems okay so far. How is your garden growing?
