It is official, Spring is here, my Magnolia is blooming. It is one of the earliest flowering Magnolias that I see in the area so some years it gets zapped by a frosty night and looses its flowers. I’m hoping that doesn’t happen this year. No cold nights are expected for the next week. We’ll see.
I’ve gotten into the garden and planted peas. I don’t plant them in neat rows, I sprinkle them heavily in a foot wide row along my garden fence. Then I rake them in, tamp them down and water. Some of the seeds are on the surface, most are under dirt, some have room and some are touching other seeds. It will be a jungle of vines when it is time to harvest but the yield will be great. I hope.
The spinach that I planted in my cold frame last fall is starting to grow again. There are too many plants in too small a space so I dug out over thirty and transplanted them into the west garden about 5 inches apart in all directions. The picture of the cold frame is after I dug out over thirty seedlings. I plan to transplant more as time allows. Probably should be doing that instead of blogging.
