Good Morning from Boo and the girls! I don't know why I started calling him that, but I kinda like it. Boo the Roo!
Look what I found growing in the yard. Pretty awesome. This is Mullein. It's an amazing herb and I'm so excited to have found that some bird must have pooped a couple of plants.;-)
Here's a shot of the lower garden. The first row is onions. The other two rows have onions on both ends as well. The second row is spinach starting to take off. The back row is chard, romaine and leaf lettuce, and some turnips.
This area used to be so overgrown you couldn't see through it, much less walk through there. One of the things we've been working on around here. Our property sits on almost on top of a good size hill. This is a shot from "the top" of the property. You can't even see either of the gardens from here.
My "ET" clothesline and birdhouse have new residents this spring. Of course when you want a picture of a bird they are never around! There's a new nest in there though, I promise.
Did you know cilantro can overwinter in many place? I had no idea until last fall. I planted a couple of seeds and pretty much forgot about it. We've had fresh cilantro since late February and it's now going to seed. Time to plant more for the upcoming salsa season.
I love chives.
Here's a shot of the old grapevine on the left, my garlic patch in the back a bit of lettuce in the middle and some mint in the bucket.
Good Neighbors! I'm seeing more and more lady bugs every year. Gotta love it
This is a plant called Rocket. It comes from the mustard family. Last year there were only two of these pretty plants. Again I'm not sure where they came from but I'm thinking it might have been the birds again. It will re-seed itself (obviously) and the bees love it. I want to gather up the seeds and plant some in that area around and under those trees in the picture up top. Some say it's invasive. I guess it's a matter of what YOU call invasive. I love it.
