I just noticed yesterday that the hyacinth that I had forgotten I'd planted is in full bloom. It is gorgeous. And the daffodils are making heads. Should be blooming any day now. The iris are up, but I don't know when they will be spectacular. The green is about a foot tall and that is pretty, but when they bloom they will be much better. Many of my trees are blooming. The camellia is about done. We've had so much rain that I don't think I'll be out planting anything anytime soon, but I sure am enjoying the springtime flowers.

The hyacinths that I had forgotten about planting are in full bloom and are gorgeous. The daffodils are starting to make heads and should be blooming soon. The iris are about a foot tall and while the greenery is pretty, I can't wait for them to become spectacular. My camellia tree (someone way back when nursed it until it is almost as tall as my 3-story house and has one trunk, so it is definitely not a shrub) is finished blooming. Many of the other trees are in full bloom right now.

It has been raining for days and I don't know when I'll be able to plant anything, but I sure am enjoying the springtime flowers!

Nothing gets planted here till after Mother's Day. We always have at least one frost in late April. Garden center loves to see people buying stuff on the 70+ degree days in April thinking it is OK to plant. Then we get a frost and it all dies.

Bad news is all hollyhocks, yellow tomatoes, geraniums and other peppers died. I plan to replant hollyhocks, geraniums, yellow tomatoes and marigolds......

Strawberries are going strong and the yellow squash is blooming. The only other edibles I put out this year are herbs and asparagus. Won't expect more than a few spears this year, and no decent crop for 3 or 4 years at least. Then it will be lots for years to come! I do love perennials.

I have way too many plants this year....I started seeds twice but no luck ether time. The only thing I have is sweet pea flowers growing in a party cup....
I started seeds again 5/3 and 5/4 ....they all came up. Yellow pear tomato, yellow jubilee tomato, jalapenos, gigante jalapenos, basil, cilantro, marigolds, dill, parsley, green beans, morning glories and some seeds I had in my frig for years now...tall nasturtiums. They are orange flowers on a vine that grows abt 10' tall. I put them in with purple morning glory seeds. It will look divine and the hummingbirds love them!! Oh... almost forgot the pot of chili peppers!! Also growing geraniums, hollyhocks, sweet pepper and cubanelle pepper. Next year I will plant seeds in May and forget abt planting in
February or March.

Good luck with your kohlrabi. I have jalapenos, plum tomatoes, oregano and boxwood basil. Rest is growing but I will have to wait. I just put the yellow pear tomatoes in the sun. The yellow jubilee tomato plants are quite large. I never grew them before.

Anyone else gardening?

I have had many jalapenos and loving them. I made corn and black bean salsa a couple of times and also tomato salsa.

I found something interesting. I did a search for free seeds and was pleasantly surprised...
