AROUND THE URBAN HOMESTEAD

Spring garden

Warm temps

Gorgeous greens

Flowering blueberries

Giant garlic

Potatoes in pots

Perfect

Yesterday was a gorgeous day.  Blue skies, white puffy clouds.  A good day just to sit in the warm sun and stare into the sky,  watching the clouds roll by.   Hmm that sounds like a song!  Anyhow,  clouds are a rare natural phenomenon here in So Cal.  For us, such a magical sky is a special treat and something to savor.

    I love the pictures of the garden with everything blooming. I gives me hope of what my garden could look like in a month or two. When you first start planting things everything looks like just a lot of damp dirt.

    It’s warm and beautiful here in West Virginia, too. We have beautiful blue skies with white puffy clouds as a matter of course; it’s wonderful you all are enjoying it as well. Such a day stirs up thoughts of Spring, gardening, and time outside on our creekbank, exercising our tortoises and celebrating life. Thank you as always for your inspirational site!

    Our fall/winter crops are flowering. I’ve left even the ones I’m not planning to collect seed from, for the butterflies and bees. They are having a grand old time in the garden. Do you have birds? We have a yard full of little tweety birds as well as others. I’m listening to them twittering away as I type.

    Yay, my potatoes look right! My garlic on the other hand… wow, the sad mange-y cousin of yours, it seems. Most of my blueberry blossoms are gone already, but I have spotted a few fledgling fruit, so here’s hoping! For a while I was afraid they’d just all been blown off in last month’s winds.

    I would just like to say that I love it when you post pictures of your garden.
    My first glance at the website was while “google” searching for PVC plant frames – and it was your innovation and approach to space that got me so interested in what you were doing way before I realized more about your “path”.
    I would like to request even more photos. This might sound boring to you, but it is really educational for the rest of us. Photos depicting specific garden areas, scopes of how you grow and shape your trees etc. How do you get all your trees in the garden without shading out everything else?
    You photos help me examine the possibilities of abundance in my own garden, and I truly appreciate them!

    I love seeing the pictures of your garden. We just planted our first real square foot garden today (we did some tomatoes in pots last year).

    I have dreams of filling in a part of our yard with lots of veggies, so it’s good to see how you have it set up. One of these days I’ll have to drive down from Santa Barbara to make a “pilgrimage”.
