Getting started…

Never mind the massive amounts of hay grass and henbit getting started, or the ginormous fire ant mound (I’ve never seen a bigger one) also getting started…

What’s getting started outside that I want to be there?

Little squash action.

Little green bean sprouts…

And there’s also the finishers, like my sole surviving broccoli, kind enough to still put off side shoots while I leave it to feed the bees.

Work is madness this week. I hope you’re all well and happy and dirty!

    I love broccoli flowers! So do the bees, apparently. Mine have just gone to bolt, but we’re still popping off little florets to snack on in the yard. It’s really a no-mess, no-nonsense plant. Worth planting in any zone.

    Good luck with those fire ants. They suck. I don’t mind them anywhere except in my garden where I walk and pick. They are NOT welcome there, and I am relentless on them when they set up shop.

  2. More wet and cold than dirty, but that’ll come, soon enough…I’m taking hope, just looking at your seedlings!

    Never knew about henbit, broccoli flowers (surprisingly lovely!) or fire ants. I’m learning to garden the easy way– from my easy chair.
