I read on a blog One Hundred A Month about how well it works to plant potatoes and peas on St. Patrick's day. So I did some planting myself. We decided against peas this year in favor for more room for what we are planting.
Potato tower attempt #2 - the cover as they grow method. (Attempt #1) I put the seed potatoes down and covered with soil. When they've grown a few inches above the soil level, I'll cover them again. I had extra seed potatoes so I started some in the garden, the "usual" way.
Also around the yard and garden this spring.
My lilac bush.
Garlic. The bigger ones are from last spring, they didn't get that big. The smaller are from when I planted (at the correct time) last fall.
I planted a row of carrots and a row of radishes.
75/365 - Front garden bed with pretty flowers. The dahlias are coming up too.
More front garden flowers.
And a little bit more front garden flowers.
76/365 - And while I was working in the garden yesterday, I finally trimmed my lavender bush - which I should have done in the fall. I took some of the trimmings, dipped them in rooting hormone and I'm hoping I'll get 4 more lavender plants out of it.
