Need a Garden Buddy from Northern Ontario....May
I don't know where the time has gone but it is May already!
The house is overflowing with plants now. I just barely have room to plant a few buttercrunch lettuce plants and zucchinis and cucumbers in the next week or two and that is it! I'm jammed packed.
I haven't been out in the garden for over a week as it has been too chilly and/or wet, but I still have lots of clean up out there to do. I have signed up for a hosta trade and I hope the weather warms up so that my hostas will start poking up so I can pot some up for my secret trade.
I have amaryllis blooming in the house and still more with flower stems on them, so I have a few flowers around. My petunias are blooming and so are my impatiens so I keep cutting them back, my fuscias are also starting to bloom. My tomatoes are not coming along as quickly as I thought they would be, but I still have a month before they can go outside.
My water lilies have sprouted in their pots so son said he would put them out sometime this week. I sure hope it warms up again so I can get that job out of the way and get the small pond on the patio going to attract birds. Haven't had many around here all winter and not many yet this spring. I did hear a robin a couple of weeks ago in the park but haven't seen any yet.
I'm looking for some toys I can get Rose, so she can play in the garden when we are out there working, but haven't found any suitable for a 2 year old yet. Hopefully Walmart will get some soon.
Jak, how are u doing? Do u have your greenhouse up and running?
Gale, do u have your water lilies in the pond yet?
Did u guys have a get together in TBay this weekend? I'd love to hear what you all did.
