Today the smell of freshly mowed grass was in the air and
sunlight shone through the windows of our home.
Today I saw baby chicks and turkeys (itty bitty fluffy cuteness) at a farm store we stopped by,
but they didn't have my favorite breed
(and I didn't have my camera with me to take a photo of their fluffy cuteness).
Today a friend and I planted Italian parsley, Bright Lights Swiss chard and Merlot lettuce
outside in one of our wine barrels.
not pink, but a purple with flowers.
Today I noticed summer bulbs are now for sale...
I am particularly fond of Stargazer and Casablanca lilies;
Today felt like spring...
I hope tomorrow will too.
we are currently using container gardening for many of our edibles. Some things growing in wine barrel halves are: culinary lavender (several kinds), strawberries, a raspberry, various herbs and some veggies. I really, really like this method; it has worked well up to now for us.
Here is how we prepped the barrels:
sorry I am feeling rather lazy tonight, so all these photos are from previous years:)
