Our Spring Show - Blooms & Buds

White Azalea
I feel like I've been a little remiss about sharing the wonderful signs of spring and our garden progress. We've had seedlings growing for
awhile and the forsythia blooms have come and gone, so I will no longer delay.
Here's a glimpse of Spring in our little patch of grass.
First, the beautiful flowers, then the vegetable seedlings.

Happy growing fellow farmers and green thumbs!
Red Azalea Blooms
Hyacinth
Forsythia
Pink Azalea buds and blooming bearded irises
This is the front garden just getting started; wait until July or August!


These are corn seedlings! I can't wait to roast 'em on the grill!
Do you know what this one is? Watermelon! We've been able to harvest
one or two a year.
A few of the veggies we have planned for the garden this year: Roma tomatoes, Cucumber, Butternut Squash, Lettuce, Carrots, Cauliflower, and, in the back, Cannas, a longtime favorite flower.
