Garden Updates May 12, 2017

A lot has been happening in the garden now that May is here. The weather in May is still fairly cool, but the patio tends to warm up nicely, and everything usually looks fantastic throughout the month.

I planted some seeds I found in my mom's old gardening stuff, and they sprouted quickly! They are orange cosmos, and I can't wait to see them in bloom. It's nice to have a part of her garden in my own. I think she would have liked that.

Also, the lettuce, spinach and mesclun has been ready for picking, along with radishes and chives. I've been finding a good use for them. Stay tuned for some simple spring garden recipes!

The roses have been loading up wth buds, and soon we'll see an abundance of their bright blooms in shades of magenta, red, ivory and pink.

I love the way it looks from all four angles of the garden. Things are looking pretty green around here, and I'm hopeful it will be a productive garden this year!
