Flowers

Every year I like spring more and more.

It’s hard to stay sad when pretty little flowers are poking up through the ground, and the world explodes with color.

An Ice Day

Ice fell from the sky, and covered the gardens in a thin frozen blanket.

I wandered around, thinking about when it was warm and all the flowers were in bloom.

It won’t be much longer now.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Back in the Vegetable Garden

Last year my vegetables grew great.

Until my garden was suddenly overcome by weeds and then the vegetable plants got so overgrown and mixed with the weeds which turned into a giant green jungle and I got so overwhelmed I couldn’t look at it.

This year I really wanted to avoid that. So I make sure to spend a few moments once a week pulling weeds and taming the vegetable plants as they grow bigger and bigger.

My camera did a good job with this picture. Check out the detail!

I planted okra for the first time!  But I’ve never cooked with it before, hopefully I can make something good with it.

This year I bought all my plants at a nursery instead of starting them by seed indoors during the winter. It was a lot less work but it took forever for them to get big enough to start making vegetables, so next year I’ll go back to starting seeds indoors.

So far I’ve managed to avoid becoming overwhelmed, and I’m glad to be excited about my vegetable garden again!
