Home Gardens Mid-April....A Pictorial
Everything here at the house is moving along slowly but surely. Boy what a difference from last year!
Left Cold Frame, overwintered carrots are finally growing and some spinach & pak choi has been sown
Right Cold Frame, the arugula is about finished, some spinach has been sown here too. I will sow more when I pull the arugula plants
The peas are finally coming up
I planted some pak choi in empty spaces in the garlic bed
Some color in the perennial beds & herb garden
Carrots have been sown in between the cloches. More carrots will be sown today in 4 large pots.
There are some good brussels sprouts on this plant. I will cut them off today and finally pull the plant. This year I started them earlier.
Lilacs are filling out. Last year they were in bloom at this time, a month earlier then normal.
Oregano is coming up nicely
The chives are also pretty big and we have been using them for cooking
Spring flowers are blooming in the perennial beds
Four flats of cold crops & some herbs have been hardening off under the bench on the back porch and most will be planted at the plots this weekend
The early tomatoes at 8 weeks old. They have been spending most of the time outside and will be planted in the cloches this weekend. Last year they were in the cloches about 10 days earlier.
