In the Garden

I have some lettuce left that hasn't bolted....been such a warm winter for us.



Laverne

My Louis Philippe Rose aka Cracker Rose is growing so well.

Cotton

My bush beans that I sowed last week are all coming up.

Gonna go ahead this week and plant my eggplants and tomatoes. Maybe sow some more bush beans.


Have y'all started ordering seeds yet? Any garden plans for spring?

Now I am going to HAVE to order seeds. lol, it is indeed time and I do indeed have the catalog right here on the table. Wonderful photos!

Your Laverne is a twin to my Chicken Little. CL is our oldest hen (around 7 years old!)and right now she is missing. I am very hopeful that she will turn up soon. She tends to hide her nest outside the pen when she gets broody but I can usually find her hiding place.

I loves those chicken faces, they make me smile at 5.32am PST.
28 degrees here this morning...

ThreeC, yep, seed catalogs are porn for us gardeners.

Granny, I wouldn't mind having a couple more easter egger hens. Love their light blue eggs.

Sending good thoughts to you and Ms. Chicken Little. :)

Froggy, 28 degrees!??!?!?!

Beautiful! It has been such an odd winter... how have your insects been? I'm dreading those bugs that probably just decided to winter right here and party early this year!

Boxer said...

do you have crazy super soil? sprouts? already? that would take weeks in my part of the world. Love the chickies. What amazing faces.

Big Shamu said...

Have the chickens ever seen themselves on video? Don't know if you have an ipad. I wonder how they would react to seeing that?

Dani said...

Erin, the mosquitos have been horrid! Hate those nasty buggers.

Boxer, we've been in the 80s now for a few weeks. Great for bean sprouts, not so much for my winter veggies.

Shamy, you might be on to something...

Shaheen said...

I'm moving home this week and am so looking forward to being able to grow again. Your space is inspiring and chooks too.

Big Shamu said...

Just make sure you have a chicken beak shield on your video viewing device for the experimentation.

Dani said...

hehehe. Yeah, beak scratches would be bad.

Melissa said...

lovely! those nasturtiums are always my favorite.

Here in KCMO, my hyacinths are getting ready to bloom. CUH-RAZY!

I know I should be drooling over your garden photos, but those chickens crack me up so much!! I love them! I want them to have their own reality TV show. LOL
