Opening Day of Garden Season

Easy start to the garden for the year - added coffee bags to the garden and 125 in the barn for future use.  And found a hellebore blooming in the former garden area.

New Garden Beds

These 2018 garden beds are in the old pumpkin patch adjacent to the main garden. Later this year, we may add similar beds in the area that had been the main garden in the past. 

I am really liking having the defined edges and the ability to level the soil within the bed.  Lots and lots of rocks have come out of the four beds!  They are all planted now, except one corner which will get sunflower seeds planted soon.

Blooms and Storms

Cherry trees, today, in between the crazy wind and rain:

Traveling Rhubarb

The rhubarb has moved from the garden to the hedgerow!  I cannot blame it, considering the state of the garden spot.   A little progress was made last weekend, between rains, so there is hope for garden re-invention.

Baby Frog Season

The little frogs are climbing out of the water and enjoying the sun.  Others are still at the swimming stage.
