Start of the Garden

Despite the cold, slow start to the growing season our garden is actually off to a good start. The pear and apple tress are in full bloom!

The strawberries are also blooming - including the new beach strawberries we planted along the stone pathway at the back gate.

On our first trip to the garden centre we also picked up a hops vine to grow on the shed. Hopefully in two years we will be able to harvest our own home grown hops to use in making our own beer.

In the vegetable garden, we have already seeded peas, carrots, beets, parsnips, onions, kale, mustard, lettuce, spinach, corn and beans. The peas have already sprouted!

I am hoping that the rain stops long enough this weekend to transplant the tomatoes and beans that were started from seed indoors.
