They haven’t bloomed yet, but they’re thinking about it!
These guys dropped all their leaves in the freezes. I love seeing their new growth contrast with the purple stems.
I fully expected the decorative peppers to take a dirt nap (yeah, I said it) after our multiple nights in the 20s since I neglected to cover them. No dice. They’re blooming yet again to add color to the front walk.
Some seeds from a coworker (self-saved from a friend, hand-labeled Chinese forget-me-nots) made themselves known this week in the Heat Bed under the shade of some painted daisies.
I hope this quick post brought some sunshine to those under feet of crisp snow or days upon days of grey skies!
If it didn’t, this one might 😉
Those are quite the tease for those of us still shoveling snow! I sure could go for one of those berries.
The tease will be returned this summer when my garden has all but wilted away and I’m drooling over the lushness up north 🙂
Yeah! I’ve had no luck with strawberries, and since we’ve got a berry grower down the road, we just let them to all the work — and we just go pick.
That’s a nice set-up! I only have room for about five plants, so during harvest I get 3-5 berries every 3-5 days. Just enough for fun, not enough to do much with…which is fine for how much time I have for this “doing stuff” nonsense 😉
