After a quick brunch and cleanup today, I ventured out to plant some flowers. What a gorgeous day! I bought some gladiolus bulbs; I think they are John’s favorite flower. I have a nice sunny space on the south side of my garage that I no longer need for tomatoes. They went in like a charm. I planted half of them, about 50, so they don’t bloom all at once. I’ll plant the rest in a few weeks.
I planted my cool weather garden a few weeks ago when it was warm: broccoli, onion sets, spinach, parsley, and radishes. The seeds are all popping up, and the broccoli and parsley are strong. Now if we can just get a few more sunny days in a row, I can be eating fresh salads from my garden in a few weeks.
The rabbit fence works. I will NOT let the bunnies eat my broccoli or parsley; it’s their favorites. We saw 8 rabbits playing in our yard a few days ago. I’m sure that’s just the tip of the iceberg. They are eating my chives, but I have enough of those to survive. Besides, now the chives are getting a bit too strong for their tastes.
