Gardens are me!











Spring











Finally









Here









Too much fun playing in the mud and planting seeds that will take their own sweet time to sprout and grow into a lovely garden.









No deer problems as you will see why. Seven feet of safety and a gate for easy access.





The garden looks different even a few days later. Green beans are about 2 inches high already.

I can almost taste the "Home Grown Green Bones" as we like to call them.

A few more plants and some flowers and we will be ready to watch and see. I am trying several new things this year. Ground Cherries, Krul Celery, Salisfy and Leeks.
Be patient - there is no microwave gardening here - just good old fashion patience...




Next we will be making some string Tee Pees for the vines. I will have a helper next week and we will make all kinds of fun supports for the cucumbers, melons and squash to hang from! Rube Goldberg watch out - here we come - string and sticks - it will be like knitting...



Here is the view from the deck!

Thanks for sharing your garden with all of us! I sure miss working the soil with my hands. I'll have a garden vicariously through your blog.
