We have had some amazing Spring weather for the last two weeks. Beautiful, sunny, highs in the 60s. But not a drop of rain until last night. So, I planted all of my “early spring” veggies the last week of April, and have been diligently watering them. Sugar snap peas, spinach, arugula, various lettuces, are all in the ground and sprouting. Our herb raised garden has quite a few plants growing in it from last year — love that — and the chives, tarragon and oregano all look amazing.
I also discovered dill the other day that was not meant to be there. That’s okay! I transplanted it to a good square and we’ll see how it goes. We have also been doing our spring chores because of the great weather, and I painted our entire front porch (back breaking work with something like 75 little spindles to paint, some of which are located behind prickly rose bushes), and Hubby cleaned and sealed our porch and decks.
Our hops plants are growing like….hops. I think they’ve grown at least 8 inches in the last 3 days (or it seems that way).
The dogs are enjoying the lovely Spring weather too. Hamp is 4.5 and finally settling down a bit. Magnus turned 13 a few months ago, but is still getting around well. I think Hamp keeps him feeling young a bit. Even when he has to steel himself to go up the stairs at bedtime. I think his old bones are happy it’s Springtime.
