Today we decided that one hour of gardening in light misting rain was better than no gardening at all. I swear the weather people said we'd see the sun all weekend long. We did some cleaning in preparation for planting the tomatoes. Just in case Mr. Raccoon decides to drop by, Diva Dog is on the job, guarding over the peas and potatoes.
At the other end of the potager our salad greens--which are mostly not green--have been producing quite nicely this Spring. There are also beets and radishes growing in the front section. In the back section there are chard, garlic, shallots, purple cauliflower and purple kale--a reject that was headed for the compost pile until Wing Nut rescued it and brought it home.
This month we missed GBBD but here are a few of our blooms from May. First up are the trilliums. We finally got trilliums to bloom in our shade garden. Not all the plants bloomed this year. A little research learned me that this is not uncommon with young plants. They can take up to 5 or more years to bloom. Last year none of our plants bloomed. This year half bloomed--all white. Hopefully next year the red ones will bloom.
