It is *so* gardening season! Celebrating with John Denver, and the muppets:
I've done very little thus far this year between months' of wedding stuff and the sprained wrist... Things grow on their own none-the-less!
Given my slow start this year, I bought a number of plant-starts this year instead of doing the bulk from seed. (Here are the fateful ones I was carrying when I tripped and sprained the drawing hand).
I've begged and hired some help and gotten the initial weeding done and the strawberry beds strewn with straw....
-the plant starts put in (seeds still to come) - and SoMuchParsley! left over from last year. Pulled out lots, but it's so lush and lovely, I can't bear to tear out more as of yet. The overwintered greens are happily growing and the sweet cicely is blooming....
- the raspberry bed is cleaned out, strewn with straw and has some new babies placed in-
-and the new-as-of-last-year spiral bed is maturing nicely. Mostly traditional/medicinal herbs. Wave at the cranky chickens (they are banished to the coop until the new growth is sufficiently established that they won't demolish it).
It is a veritable jungle of sumptuous jungley growth (here are the burgeoning buds on the kiwi vines). Maybe by next week I'll be able to actually work out here two-handed!
