Busy Spring and My Spring Has Sprung

Spring Means Get Busy!

With trying to get the gardens set up, replace a full section of fencing, plus gate, and just keep up with the other real world of mine, this has been a busy week. Editing of book two is in full swing and there are just so many hours...this is just a fast catch up.

Of course, I have to make another lasagna garden for my north side fern  garden. The vendor was very helpful and this is the order that seemed the best. I took pictures and did diagrams and made a footnote on the bottom of my shoe, so it should all work out -- if I don't walk through any puddles!  Am not going to show you the fence, until it's finished. Got the gate done yesterday and just waiting for an extra pair of hands to put it in place. I'm sure you'll be devastated to know that I have a splinter...

With so much to do, I needed sustenance and it was so sunny, I just had to have some solar eggs (whites are cooked, yellows silky) and...
my favorite kind of solar biscuits -- cooked! My brother-in-law and some friends liked them just soft and whitish (aaarrgghhh, bletch, ptui!), but I like them with a little crunch and soft insides. These were those canned buttermilk big boys, or whatever they're called. They were way past the expiration date but seemed to do just fine, tastewise.

Then, it was off to plant the herbs in the lasagna garden. They look so tiny but will grow big and strong. Will also slip some veggies, in between, when I get three seconds...
Forward I go to the container garden to see what's developing, there. The peas are in flower! This is a good sign, a very good sign. Just under this beauty, the chard is about four inches high.
Lettuce is up and begging me to make it a part of a luscious salad. (Your wish is my command, Black-Seeded Simpson!) Radishes a-plenty and pretty spring onions, too.
The sage is ready for harvesting. I keep pulling the florets off the chives to give me a break, but that may not work for long.  Broccoli is heading up and I've shared a few leaves with local critters. It's a symbiotic relationship. They don't eat what I want -- and I won't eat them!
And, the bees are back! I won't have to go through the summer with Q-Tips doing what they do and making buzzing sounds through my teeth. That, can be exhausting.  Seems to me, way back in December, I was wondering if Spring would ever get here because I so wanted to play in my gardens. Hard to believe, I know, but I'm  ready for some drinks by the pool and soft music in the background...but, the strazzberries are coming in...
