‘How Does Our Garden Grow?
Education is an admirable thing. But it is well to remember from time to time that nothing that is worth knowing can be taught.- Oscar Wilde
We are still dealing with ongoing home construction that causes us to move plants, pots and stuff to one side of the house on week and to the other side the next. Otherwise the ongoing construction circus you can see, the garden is recovering nicely from one of the worst freezes we’ve had in over a century. However, we are going to have to deal with the lack of rain – only about 3″ has fallen this year when the normal is about 19″. In the meantime, we’ll enjoy the garden while the weather’s cool, because once summer comes and there’s not been a deep soaking rain for months gardening is going to a bit more difficult than it has been in years.
In anticipation of summer…. the tomatoes are thigh high, peppers and eggplant are not far behind. The greens are growing lush, red strawberries peak out underneath the dark green leaves – we are eating well.
