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.
and here is a present for Our Friend Ben.
