Garden News

Usually we don't put in the garden until early to mid-May, but that super-warm streak we had around St. Paddy's Day was just too much for me to resist.  So I put in a little 2 foot wide planting in my 5 foot wide middle raised bed.  Some radishes, some carrots, some beets.  And they sprouted, and grew, and when we had frost warnings I went out in the evenings and tucked them in with a couple of old towels to protect them.
Then, yesterday, here in northeastern Wisconsin, on April 28th, I harvested 6 radishes from my garden.  

They were yummy.

Happy (Belated) Easter!

Thanks go out to TNGreatAunt for the (as always) adorable dresses, and to the Easter bunny for the yummy & fun eggs. :)

....and they're off!

The Easter Bunny left a note that the pink & blue eggs were for Pumpkin
while the yellow & purple ones were for Penguin.

Sometimes the Easter Bunny wasn't very tricky.

Why find your dress shoes when Mommy says you can go hunt eggs?!
Grab whatever pair's the closest!
