It's so lovely to see things return from winter, blooming and inviting the pollinators to come and play. We've had a wonderful flurry of bees over the past few days. I returned from California with some new additions for the garden, namely a haul of succulent cuttings ready for propagation into containers.
And this week, I put a new apple tree in the ground - a grafted Jersey Black variety that I bought from Seed Savers Exchange. It won't fruit until the 5th or 6th year, but I'm a planner! This week, I also started seeds for my summer and early fall garden: heirloom French zucchini, pickling cucumbers, pole beans, Lemon Queen sunflowers, Paddy Pan squash and golden squash! Even after only a few days, I've already got germinating sprouts!
Tell me what's growing in your garden?
