i am so in love with our yard and neighborhood in the spring.....and really all year long, other than january and february. this spring we have planted a dogwood, almond, and white peach trees, more rhubarb, wisteria, summer daffodils, clematis, more asiatic lilies, more peonies, toad lilies, blue pearl polemonium, red coral bells, lily of the valley, more hydrangeas, caladium, and gladiolus.....maybe more? next week a fig tree, kiwi vines, and 2 replacement grapes are coming, which will bring our total number of fruit trees to 16, plus 5 nut trees, blueberries, strawberries, blackberries, raspberries, and 4 types of grapes....so excited for them to keep growing and producing!
we've made big changes in our garden this year, which we are excited about - putting in fencing and raising our beds, finally buying a composter. and i got all of our early planting finished yesterday - lettuce, spinach, snow peas, regular peas, kale, candy onions, green onions, pak choi, potatoes, carrots, and beets.....jus tin time for torrential rainfall. i'm afraid to go out and investigate - afraid all of the little seeds were washed away.
