Happy Spring.

I'm out this morning doing a having a little pruning and planting therapy.  I am stunned at the things that didn't die last summer.  My viburnum, mock orange and Maggie rose have all returned from the dead.  The only thing I know for sure that didn't make it was a very large prostrate rosemary.  I will miss it so.

This year I'm going to try a small watermelon called Minnesota Midget.  Four seeds in containers and five in the ground.  I hope it works because we need short tomato vines for our small garden.  We don't want another repeat of "The Attack of the Giant Pumpkin Vine."

Hope all your gardens are growing well.


Happy Spring.

and here is a present for Our Friend Ben.

  1. Gulp! I didn't realize that Ben was, uh, green! Doubtless just ahead of his time (as usual) in supporting the ecological/organic front. Er, right? Then again, maybe Silence and I should start locking our doors at night...

  3. We have the same issue with limited space so large vines arent allowed around here. I will be interested to see how you fare with the midget variety.
