Garden Update: End of AprilWednesday, May 03, 2017
The kale is gorgeous and continues to grow new leaves rapidly, the lettuce, spinach and mesclun are starting to send out their first true leaves, and my catnip seems to be coming along nicely. It even reseeded itself in no man's land. There isn't any soil there, but it seems to have planted itself in concrete, and dug down far enough. Of course, the mint family would be the only plant to grow in the middle of concrete. Have you ever tried to get rid of that stuff? It's impossible, which is why I grow it in pots!
The ostrich ferns have finally started displaying their fiddle heads, and it appears that they will need to be divided sometime soon. I'm not sure how to do that, so if anyone has any tips, please comment! The clematis finally has its first spring flower on it, and I can't wait for it to open. The onions and thyme are taking off and getting tall or spreading.
Summer planting countdown is down to just a few days! I'm so excited, and can't wait to update you all later this month with what I've planted, and how it's growing. I also REALLY can't wait to get these overgrown tomatoes in the ground. I currently have the tallest one tied to a stool in my kitchen because it's just too tall now to stand on it's own in the nursery pot!
