Springtime & Passover
It’s that time of year when our thoughts turn to Matzo and mulching. I had two swell Seders with David & our pal Nell and two big gardening days.
Sunday we tried to play catch up in the garden, and I continued for four hours on Monday. Things are still pretty behind, and we had some casualties. The peach tree looks pretty damn dead.
We did manage to plant a bunch of veggies, we put in lettuce, broccoli, eggplant, zucchini, red pepper, yellow pepper, basil, sage, lavender. Today I got the Canna in and divided and planted all the Dahlia bulbs in starter pots.
(The Lilies, you’ll have to wait until late July until these bloom)
(My favorite tree ever – the Japanese Maple)
(The first of the Strawberries coming in)
(The peppers, zucchini & herbs)
(The, now, sad looking lettuce . . . just wait)
Hi Patty, I love your garden. I believe we might have met recently. I took a private spindle/spinning class at the Point Cafe w/Alexandra!!! Good to know we’re not so far from each other. I too live in Park Slope!!
I love Park Slope! I met Alexandra a few years ago at the Park Slope Knitting group. Isn’t she the BEST spinning teacher ever?
