Peaches in bloom
Fruit on my apricot tree
I've been slowly working on getting my summer garden ready for planting. Over the winter the weeds too hold, with Spring upon us they have spouted up everywhere and now, I have a lot of clearing I have to attend to. I'll also loosen and amend the soil and plan out what is going to go where. I can hardly wait to get my hands dirty and start planting.
Last year, the garden gave us many delicious meals and it's such a treat to go in our backyard, pick ripe produce right off the vine and have it on our dinner table that night. It doesn't get much better than that and a wonderful lesson for The Little Miss. I'm also looking into joining or starting a neighborhood garden exchange. I'd love to be able to trade some of my fruit and veggies with my neighbors who might be growing something I'm not. It would be a great way to meet my neighbors and a wonderful way to get a bigger variety of fresh produce..
What's in your garden this year?
