Spring garden is full of budding flowers and fruits.

The bees are busy working all the blossoms here on the urban homestead – hopefully it will be a good fruit set and honey year.

What better way to spend your time than to sit in the garden during the early evening watching the goats and inhaling the invigorating citrus blossoms. Mmmmmm

Lettuce touched by the sun

Fragrant citrus blooms

Dainty strawberry blooms

The ladybugs are coming out to do battle with the aphids.

Over 10 lbs of peas.  Adding up the month’s harvest tally as we speak!

    Fantastic! I look to your pictures for inspiration and motivation. Thanks for sharing. I haven’t harvested any yet. But I’ll forward my tally once I have it. Tell Justin I like the gardener hat.

    Just beautiful Anais! Thank you for sharing these lovely pictures. After reading all of the horrible news today, I needed to see this beauty.

    Re the garden hat you can get your very own at

    Happy spring!

    Oooh…. Whenever I feel my garden is big and luscious, I only need look at yours to realize that I have a long, long, long way to go. Not a bad thing, oh no… to see beauty that even my minds eye cannot envision is a blessing. You are my blueprint. Thank you for setting the bar so high. Someday, I will get there.

    THIS is what I want. I don’t live in the city, but I have a small peice of land to work with. My garden is dinky, but I feel like I can get a lot out of it, if I only know HOW! I have been working to get every inch of this place that I can to produce some sort of food, medicine, or bee plant. It’s slow going, but I feel like I am making SOME progress. Part if it just just not knowing what I am doing, there is so little information out there (that I can find, anyway) on gardening in this manner.

    Every time I get discouraged, I come here, look around, and say, if they can do it, so can I!!

    I love to look at your picks! I can’t believe you have baby apples already! My trees are just blooming, tho the plums bloomed earlier and have little pea size plums on them! How many sq ft/ foot of row did it take to give you 10# of peas at once!?

  9. Stacy says:

    Love all the early spring pictures! What are you planning on doing with the fermenting daikon radishes?
