We had glorious Spring weather all weekend. I spent the better part of both days outside in my yard and I have the sunburned arms to prove it.
I call this my Lucky Spot. This year I had nasturtiums come up on their own. Last year, I had morning glory magically appear. I don’t know if the birds are bringing the seeds or what, but I’m thankful for the gift nonetheless.
This dove and his mate spent all weekend on the fence watching me work.
I planted several varieties of squash and cucumbers, including pickling cucumbers so I can make my Grandma’s bread and butter pickles.
Six varieties of tomatoes, including these San Marzanos I started last month from seed.
Green peppers, yellow bells and jalapenos for fresh salsa and pico de gallo. Green beans, melons, chives, basil, cilantro and more mesclun also made it into my raised beds this weekend.
Finally, here’s an iris just waiting to burst out. It has the most gorgeous purple iridescence. It was a wonderful gardening weekend.
Did you do any planting last weekend?
