Lovely morning

It's a beautiful day outside. I've been planting kale in the front yard and onions in the back. Been a bit under the weather so I wasn't out that long this morning.

But I did take some photos for you. :)

A yummy update

Along with the kale I had gotten some pansies and cabbages, which are now in the front yard around the apple trees in an alternating pattern. Did you know that pansy leaves taste like lettuce? And they grow pretty well in the winter, too.

Today, though, not much got done -- sort of a day off for me. :)

It's finally raining!

We got some wonderful rain last night (they're saying almost 2 inches!), which normally wouldn't be a big deal here but we've been in a terrible drought lately so it's great, because in this area, the dirt is either concrete or slimy mud. But today my husband and I went out and planted a grapevine in the backyard and the dirt was actually just right.

This week I found some lovely "ornamental" kale plants, which I'm going to be planting in the front yard over the next few days.

A short note to check in ...

I'm off to a high school marching band competition that my son's school is participating in so I won't be out in the garden today.

Earlier this week, I planted strawberries and onions ... I'll try to have some photos for you next time of their progress.

I also planted saffron crocus bulbs by one of the apple trees. We'll see how they turn out next year!

(By the way, what do you think of the new design?)
