Spring Sprung!!!!

Posted on

When we weren’t looking. Everything started to pop open.

Out of nowhere my weeping cherry went nuts. So did the tulips.

Bulbs opening left and right. Hyacinth, hellesbores, daffodils, tulips. All the spring flowers beginning to bloom as the temperatures rise. I love spring. I plant things. Nurture them. Take pleasure in how fast they grow. I am really happy about my garlic in the garden, though. At least a baker’s dozen of garlic bulbs, which will be preceded by those lovely garlic scapes perfect for pesto.

The ones in the pots didn’t do as well, so no pics of them. I should at least get spring garlic out of those. But, my chives came back very strong. Love them snipped off and added to dinner at the last moment.

The lavender is coming back, too. I will clean out these boxes and add a few microgreen mixes. If you want to do something easy, plant a few herbs and microgreens in window boxes.

Working on a post about my “Out there” local meal, involving Breezy Willow eggs and local meats. It is spring in the midatlantic, and we are loving it.

Retired, I am following my dream of living in quiet west Howard County, a rural oasis, not far from the urban chaos, but just far enough. I love to cook, bake, garden, and travel. I volunteer at Howard County Conservancy. I lead nature hikes, manage programs and show children all the wonders of nature, and the agricultural connection to their food.

  1. My garlic chives are out of control….maybe I’ll make a pesto. Your garlic looks great, I moved mine to pots on the deck this year, will get more than last year but lost a few in shallow pots.
