From commentor OpieJeanne:
It’s supposed to be raining right now but we lucked out and managed to work for a couple of hours this morning and get some mulch down around the survivors of the hideous freezes we had, as well as their replacements…
The first photo is of the two new strawberry beds, planted with “pups” from our old bed which has been overwhelmed by buttercup. The first sugar snap peas are barely showing above the dirt or I would have shot them specifically, but it’s just that first hint of “knee” that they show when they want to tease us.
The shot with the pansies is of the apple garden, but they’re a little hard to see because they are just starting to leaf out. I stood on the septic hump to shoot the last one in this set, septic hump being such a romantic notion, but it does give a nice view of the garden.
It begins, here north of Boston — first garden center visit of the year Saturday afternoon, and we came home with a half-flat of allysum and some hardy plants to keep my spirits up while I start the desperately needed spring clean-up process, this afternoon…
What’s going on in your gardens, this week?
