Here we are, the end of April and the backyard garden plot is finally starting to take shape. Just a few more weeks to go until I can plant my tomato starts and really start to see some progress from above.
The recent cold weather has done wonders for the peas, broccoli and cabbage plants. The herb garden is coming alive too.
Yesterday, I transplanted my tomato seedlings to larger pots and lined the greenhouse walls with them. Hopefully by the time they are ready to be transplanted they will have established a nice root ball and will be easy to remove from the free pots I scored last week.
Not much is going on at the future heirloom pumpkin patch. It’s too chilly to plant pumpkins so for now it sits empty.
The raspberry canes are starting to leaf out. It looks like I still have quite a bit of dead raspberry canes to prune, but sometimes it’s hard to tell if a cane is dead or not so I think I’ll wait just a little longer to see if there is any new growth.
The potato towers I built are looking great, and so are the new rhubarb plants.
And lets not forget about the flowers. The hillside of periwinkle is in full bloom and looks divine.
