Happy Tuesday, Gardening Friends! I hope your garden is growing well. This past week we had horrible 50 mph wind advisories and very cold temperatures over night. Of course this happened while my husband and I were out of town and right after I set out many of my brassica seedlings. Luckily, my sister in law was able to cover everything with a warm layer of straw – and all but two of them seem to be okay right now. But to me, this just underscores the need for row covers like Jami suggests.
In other gardening news, I finally planted carrot and lettuce seeds! My fruit trees are leafing out and starting to blossom. And the weeds are growing everywhere. The work in the garden and homestead never ends, does it? Hey y’all – it’s time to party! Can’t wait to read what’s going on in your neck of the woods.
Tuesday Garden Party – Garden Inspiration for 4/28/2015
It’s Tuesday and time for the Garden Party! Read on to link up your garden inspired posts – recipes, diy, tutorials, and tips & tricks! If you don’t have posts to link up, come keep reading for a big dose of garden inspiration!
From your host this week, Jami at An Oregon Cottage:
Oh, happy spring! I’m happy to report we are eating the first of our garden lettuce and spinach to go along with all the asparagus we’ve been harvesting. Such. a. great. feeling. The brassica seedlings (broccoli, cauliflower, and cabbage) have all been planted under the row cover that helps them so much and I’m in the process of hardening off the tomato seedlings to plant out under their cover this next week or so.
And all the spring flowers? They’re so delicate and beautiful. I find myself just wandering around looking to see what new bud or bloom has appeared. It’s nice to enjoy the change of seasons, isn’t it?
Did you all get a chance to check out the great links from last week’s party? So interesting and inspiring! Here are the five I chose to feature this week:
1. A twig pea trellis (and neat garden!) at Moms Sunday Cafe
2. DIY Cedar Flower Planter at Lehman Lane
3. DIY Flagstone Path at Gentle Joy Homemaker
4. Planting early tomatoes with Wall-o-Waters at Stoney Acres
