In My Garden First Week of May




The changes in my garden are happening daily!



I walk around every morning and evening noting the growth changes and what's blooming.


Right now I am enamored with my purple alliums...












And the barberry growing near them...







And a small Bergenia blooming out front...














Happy Gardening!

Peas in a Pot Revisited


In this blog post about container gardening, 

I mentioned growing peas in a pot.



Here they are not quite a month later...





They are growing up inside the tomato cage on top of the pot.


This keeps them from sprawling and makes it easier to pick them!










Happy Gardening!

Tulips in the Garden




Some of my tulips have started to bloom!



On the heels of my daffodils,


my backyard tulips are just starting to open.


























Don't you just love spring?






Happy Gardening!

The Lazy Gardener Garden Tip ~ Container Planting




Have a small vegetable garden but would like to plant more?



Use huge pots to expand your garden!








I planted peas in this huge pot and put a tomato cage on top for them to climb.


Yeah, that pot is ugly, but it was free!


This is functional gardening...not pretty!






Just starting to sprout.







The plan is for the peas to climb this tomato cage.







When the peas are done in June, I'll plant potatoes in this pot.


Two crops in one pot!








Happy Gardening!

New in my Garden ~ Early April




Despite winter hanging around long past wanting it around,

spring is happening in my garden.



Yes, finally!








Daffodils in the front flower bed!







Tulips up in compost mulched beds.





Native daylilies and a lonely daff.








Peas just poking above the soil!







Lettuce and radishes need to be thinned soon.






Now all I need is a little rain and some warmth!






Happy Gardening!
