It starts...

The weather has been really unhelpful so far this season - cold, gray and even still a bit icy here and there...the bugs are having a field day and the plants that weren't eaten to death have been languishing in a state of nearly suspended animation...growth has been in agonizing centimeters, blossoms have been slow to appear.

But, finally...things are starting to happen out there.

Green beans and summer squash; looks like there will be food after all!

Y.U.M. we have no fruits of our labors yet...we've had a very wintry spring and we're still not to the "warm" weather. We just barely turned our sprinklers on and probably don't really need to start watering just yet...except the garden wouldn't grow!

Have you planted Edamame? We did last year and LOVED it....something to try in the future if you haven't already.

By the way - I'm amused that my
"word verification" is "idud" - perfectly describes my gardening abilities! I'm a dud!
