It's Done

Mac finished up building the greenhouse by himself, quite a feat with a cracked rib.  Seedlings have been planted, loads of tomatoes and peppers, 4 pots of Forget Me Nots and a pot of Sweet Williams.  Lots more room so we'll be planting more.
Right next door the Fava Beans (Broad Beans) are just about ready to eat, we like them when they're still small.
The weather here was in the mid-80's so everything is growing like crazy.  I finally got the raised beds in the garden weeded and I've planted peas (it'll soon be too hot for them) and pole beans.  Last week I saw that the strawberries were in flower and yesterday I saw that we have strawberries already.
Around the veggie bed are tubs of potatoes that are really doing well and lettuce, some of which is ready to eat.
Hope it doesn't stay this warm though, we need some nice 70º weather before summer hits.

  3. The greenhouse looks amazing! That first photo looks like a painting with a Victorian sort of glass house there in the woods :) Your husband must be very proud of his work. I hope you give him & his ribs a rest now. You have so much growing in the garden already! Amazing. Enjoy your week :)

  4. Your greenhouse is wonderful. You will be able to garden year around. I'm envious of all the things you have growing already.


A Bit of a Milestone

Friday I went to the commissary with Mac to grocery shop and I managed to get all of it done without having to sit down and rest.  That ma...
