It’s been a nice mix of rainy days and sunny days around here. I’ve heard a few times this winter that this is the driest winter we’ve had since the Gold Rush! That was a very long time ago! So any rain we get is very welcome around these parts.
We have a whole smattering of seedlings coming up….and then getting immediately eaten. Though we moved about three short miles away, I feel in some ways that we have to relearn gardening all over again. The soil here is completely different and the garden pests too are different. We’ve never had such a problem with seedlings being eaten as we have had here. We’ll learn soon enough what we need to do to grow successfully here. It’s just a matter of not giving up before we find the right answers.
In the meantime the lilacs are starting to bloom and there is promise of new apples to press later in summer.
What’s happening in your garden lately?
