Spring Planting

I think we've finished with the spring planting. The recommended planting date is after the last freeze. But the weather has been so erratic lately that it was difficult to know when you were having the last one. We just set a new record for the latest frost of the year.

Everything is looking nice and green at the moment, and I am going to try to be diligent and keep it that way.

I planted Red Romaine lettuce in the hydroponic planters.

I also planted some Round green lettuce in the hydroponic planters.

We planted two presidential rose bushes: "Kennedy" and "Lincoln".

We planted two thornless blackberry bushes.

We planted the roses and blackberries along the side of the back deck.

This raised bed has potatoes and tomatoes planted and growing nicely.

The asparagus is beginning to sprout. So far 8 of the 10 plants have sprouted.

The remainder of the raised bed has onions, which are growing nicely.

The potato plants are doing well and are very leafy.

The hydroponics have lettuce, strawberries, tomatoes, and a few herbs.

Guv'nor planted two apple trees at the back: Granny Smith and Mollie's Delicious.

Guv'nor also planted four raspberry canes at the front of the house.


  1. SO excited about those raspberry plants!

    1. Me too! Two have already sprouted and are blooming. The other two look dead.
