The month flew by!!! I have been traveling between our two homes and gearing up for a great growing season ahead. The garlic is growing wonderfully.
The weather has been warmer down south but the chance for frost is still possible there, as well as, up north here ,,,, so I wait a little longer before I plant out all my seedlings. Next trip down I will be taking about 8 trays of seedlings (good luck on that transport!) The majority of the gardening will be down south and it can get a little tricky when I am gone for an extended period of time. Speaking of which I had to leave the Nasturtium unattended for over a week and they did survive. I had them watered and enclosed in a little greenhouse enclosure and did have someone check in on them to water if needed. A few yellow leaves and I could tell they needed some attention (they had that look). They will be joining the trip down south next week although I may leave a few up here for comparison – I will have to plant them outside before leaving and cross my fingers that frost doesn’t come visit while I am away.
The little growers, Natalie and Charlie are fascinated with their Nasturtium seedlings.
There was a casualty when Natalie just HAD to squeeze one of the seedlings to see how it was doing! Poor little guy couldn’t survive the hug. I will be stopping over there early next week to talk garden plans and check in on all the little ones!
A whole lot of Windy weather lately – warmer, yes but windy as heck! The lilac are in bloom – one of my favorites!
