Blossoms & Beds

20120403-180519.jpg

Our computer seems to be malfunctioning, so I’m using the WordPress app on my phone for my post today. It’ll be a short one, as I’m not fond of tap-typing.

There are blossoms appearing everywhere in my neighbourhood, though some of my favourite trees have yet to bloom. I’m also pleased to see that many of my neighbours are converting their front yards to garden beds. We’ve got backyard garden space ourselves and I’m looking forward to getting my vegetable garden planted this weekend or next.

My food gardening guide is Mel Bartholmew’s Square Foot Gardening, but I saw an Urban Farming guide today that I’d like to add to my collection.

I’ll leave you with a shot I took of a neighbour’s yard in which they’ve converted all the available space to gardening beds. I think it’s much more beautiful than a lawn.

I’d love to hear about spring in your part of the world and what your plans are for your outdoor space, whether it’s an acreage or a balcony.

  1. Wow, Teresa. I am so impressed that you created this post on your phone app. I make so many typos when I type on my phone that I haven’t tried the mobile Blogger and don’t even have it downloaded. This is my favorite time of the year when all the trees are in bloom and there has been so many blooming this past month or so here. I have not had a lot of time to get out in the garden yet, but plan to this weekend. I am itching to start planting again. Many of my herbs survived the winter, but I need to get some more and I want to get some vegetables in soon.

    1. I was pretty impressed with myself, too – I’m not the best phone typist! I’ve got some herbs in and some of them survived the winter, too. I’m looking forward to a little more warm weather, so they start growing enough for me to use them.

  2. Kudos to you and your phone blogging. I don’t have the patience. I can barely answer emails, and then they’re the terse, one or two sentence kind. My spring garden is coming along nicely. Kale is almost big enough to begin harvesting and the pea vines are about 4-5 inches tall.
