Tales from my Garden: 2012
I feel a bit behind in sharing about the garden progress already and it's still only May. As we head into a week of rain my pots are out on the deck getting a good soaking. The snap and shelling peas are over a foot tall, I've picked out two new varieties of tomatoes to try and planted cucumbers . Fingers crossed on those! This year I also decided to double up on parsley because we love it in almost everything. I also got some applemint, lemon balm, lavender and bee balm. In the front plot the tulips are just getting past and I'm really excited about our first rhubarb harvest (once I use up the last frozen rhubarb in the freezer.) I may add one more round of plants in a month or so, but for the most part it's time to sit back a bit and let nature do her thing.
