Happy Tuesday, Friends! I’m excited for this week. The temperatures are finally creeping up – I’m very happy to see warmer lows. For the next week, most of our lows are in the 40s instead of the teens and 20s. That’s HUGE progress!
Speaking of garden progress – I see signs of life in my garden! Baby rhubarb! And my tulips and daffodils are finally waking up and getting big. My seedlings are looking great and I am almost finished transplating them into bigger pots. Now I need a bigger shelf to store them on as I’m rapidily running out of room and I have more plants to start… Soon I will be able to direct sow my peas, I hope.
Now, if I could just get my garden plan together. For some reason I have really been procrastinating drawing it out this year. But I need it drawn out. It really helps me focus and keeps me on track – gives me a place to write down notes so I can reflect the following year. So, drawing out my garden is a must accomplish this week, because I hope to plant peas soon!!

From this week’s Tuesday Garden Party’s Host, Shelly from Frugal Family Home
So many things in the garden seem to be early, this year. I think it’s the warm weather we pretty much had from Thanksgiving on that brought on this early spring like weather. While it was nice to have a mild winter, I’m a little concerned we are going to have drought conditions this summer.
You see our rainfall is right on for this time of year, but the snow pack in the mountains is really low. Which usually means water restrictions in our area in the summer. An area where we have an average rainfall of 40 inches a year. But I’m trying not to think about it too much and am enjoying the lovely spring weather we are having.
With all the warm weather we are already seeing the snapdragons starting to bud. Which seems super early to me, usual it’s another month before I see them showing up. The hostas took off early this year too. I swear you can sit and watch them grow. I really wanted to divide them this year but I just didn’t have the time.
When we trimmed back our Hydrangea this past fall we found a stem that was buried in the leaves. It had already started to grow roots. We transplanted the stem to another area of the garden and hoped for the best. There was no signs of life all winter long.
My husband even grabbed it and pulled on it, asking me “What is this?” I reminded him it was the transplanted Hydrangea and to leave it alone. Just this week it has signs of life. Maybe it will take off. If it does that will be the second transplant from our one Hydrangea bush. I love getting free plants.
