Garden Report 4-12-12

It rained and hailed yesterday afternoon. Today, after a few days of cool weather, it's warming up again. The peas have been up about an inch high. They'll be needing some warm weather to really take off. Garlic is doing well. I mulched the bed with compost as I always do. The shoots are just starting to push out of the soil. I can see the fat growing tips just breaking the surface. One plant has 6 fat shoots. I think this is the 4th year for this bed. So we'll be enjoying a full harvest from now on.

Yesterday I planted fingerling potatoes in 10 big pots. Each pot got 5 or 6 sprouted potatoes.This should make harvest easier and clear up some space on the vegetable beds.

Daffodils have been blooming. Yeasterday I noticed a yellow tulip juist start to open. It was planed on the south side of the house near the apartment kitchen window. In the woodland garden the Hepaticas and Dutchman's Breeches are at peek. Corydalis sempervirens is also blooming.

You always have great ideas - I need to get some inspiration from you for this chunk of earth we have here!
