Garden Progress: 5.6.2010

The weather has been so beautiful, everything is green and growing!

We picked up these chairs at Ace Hardware and they are really comfortable! We've never had any chairs to relax in outside and these are perfect to have in the backyard to relax in while L and the pups play.

Happy to see my columbine have made it up again. These have traveled many miles from seeds we got from my Grandma's old house.

Onto the garden progress, onions are going crazy! I planted a row of carrots in the first bed and lettuce, spinach and radishes in the second bed.

This is the other new bed that we built this year, it's right by the garage along the driveway, very convenient to get to. The green pot is our hearty chives! The first year we planted the chives we left the pot out in the winter, through all of the snow and we were surprised when they came back again the next spring!(we hadn't done our research on chives!) The 2 square pots(who also received a spray paint makeover that I talked about a few days ago) are an experiment of how well they will do in a pot. The one with the trellis has our sugar snap peas in it and the other has our jalapeƱo pepper plant.
