Still wet, but sun is on its way

I made it out to the yard today. Its been gloomy, wet, with patches of blue sky, and no rain. So here is how the garden is doing.

We have little apples.

  We have artichokes growing, but no nothing to harvest yet  

Meet the swiss chard.

The peach tree has blossoms.

The meyer lemon has flowers.

The potato plants are in cages. Thought that might be safest.

A little green friend with the grape plant.

The blueberries are growing. I hope they ripen. And some of the cutting from the trees are taking root. Don't ask me how, but its happening. We may end up with more trees. And yes, I put tags on them so I know what is what. Hopefully those tags stay put.

Two days of slow rain

The good news - we've had a slow light rain for almost two days. We have had times of no rain, but its been wet and gloomy out there. We have barely made it to 60 degrees. Hopefully if it lets up I will go out and take some pictures of the trees and plants. But they are saying more rain for the next day or so. We'll see.

But we can use the moisture. No argument there.

Some changes and notes

I've decided to begin making some changes to the site. Nothing to major, but you will notice some links on the right hand side. I don't make money off this site and I don't intend to. So if you click a link, I don't make anything off it. Those links are to sites I use (the gardening links) and sites I visit (fashion sites). More sites will be added eventually.

We got rain!

The garden is starting to come together nicely. I recently signed up for The Old Farmer's Almanac Garden Planner. They send out emails with Your Personalized Planting Reminders telling you when to plant seed or sow indoors. I figured I would give it a try and see if I have better luck with my garden. Its nice because they seem to send out emails only weekly or every two weeks. So you don't get a lot of emails, but they are very time sensitive. So when you get them, they are do now kind of information. So we'll see how it goes.

Following TOFAGP Pat and I have put in a lot of seed. We've already got tomatoes in the ground, peas, beans, more asparagus, more strawberries, collard greens, swiss chard, and we even got corn in already.  We'll see how they do.

Another thing that has happened is the apple trees have fruit. We have lots of little apples on the trees. We transplanted the stupid plum (it needs a new name - maybe survivor?) to the area with the other fruit tree…
