Hi awesome gardening friends! Look at some of the great things I found at last week’s TGP:
Emily from The Country Mumkin gardens in France (!) and is fighting a wet spring by planting a lot of starts in her greenhouse while waiting for the ground to dry out. She started peas in toilet paper tubes – that weren’t cut down like I tried last year – to give the roots room to grow and then plants them out in the garden in the tubes to lessen the transplant shock.
Emily’s seem to be working much better than mine did- she’s making me think I need to try something different. Hmmm….
Beth at Garden Grumbles and Cross Stitch Fumbles made me sigh when I saw the view she gets to see on her porch. It’s so spring-ish and happy, isn’t it?
Andrea from The Greenbacks Gal inspired me to buy a pot of basil instead of buying already cut basil from the produce department. It’s only about a dollar more and it should keep producing for at least longer than the bunch of cut stems will last in the fridge!
Finally, Athena at Minerva’s Garden shared what she accomplished in the garden- including planting peas to climb up this great trellis. It’s made from twigs that came from her property wrapped with twine. Cute and functional- I love it!
I, too, got some things planted last weekend, including peas (finally- I hope they last long enough to actually harvest them!), potatoes, carrots, and more beets. Things are coming along!
What have you been up to this week?
