2013 Garden

The lilacs are blooming......the side porch is beckoning....

The folk lore where we live is that sweet peas should be planted on Good Friday. My garden is never ready then. Until this year...I was ready to go! So I planted cabbage, broccoli, and sweet peas right around Ash Wednesday. Forty days too soon! I'm not quite sure what was going through my mind:)

In spite of my errors and some serious frost, or rather freezing, the plants have survived. I added a few plants a couple of weeks ago and everything looks like it is reasonably healthy. We will see...

Of all the places....

Tucker could sit in our yard, he has found his favorite spot...right in the middle of the garden beds that are under construction.
