I got to go out and plant yesterday! Gosh, it felt great! And the weather was lovely too. ♥
Gonna make this a short one because I’m heading out there again in a little while to have my coffee on the patio and then putz around in my mom’s flower bed a bit. There’s a high of 78 in the forecast today and I’m eager to get out there and enjoy it, so I’m just gonna share a few pictures.
So, I planted my peas and some lettuce. 😀
Here’s my little peas after a good overnight soaking…
getting all tucked in…
and given a drink…
Grow happily little peas, I can’t wait to eat you! 😀
A friend of mine from Alabama sent me a sort of ‘gardener’s care package’ of seeds earlier this spring and one of them was a Mesclun salad mix. I had already purchased my lettuce seed, so I planted two types of lettuces this year…
such tiny little seeds…
I was afraid to plant anything else yet since we just had snow last week, but I knew peas and lettuce should be safe. Ordinarily, around Mother’s Day is the date I typically figure the coast is clear, but with this weird spring weather we’ve been having, all bets are off.
Just planting those two things gave me the gardening fix I’ve so been needing, but wanting to do just a bit more… I also dug up and divided some terribly root-bound iris that I had planted in my mom’s flower bed over 15 years ago…
It was to the point where only one or two of these would actually bloom, but dividing them up should help a great deal. 😀
I ended up with tons of extra little iris sprouts, and had no idea what to do with them all, so temporarily I just put them into a few random pots that I had laying around until I can figure it out.
I think my sis will be happy to take a few of them off my hands to plant up at her cabin.
Well that was it as far as what gardening I did, but while I was out there enjoying myself, I also noticed that the Lily of the Valley are sprouting up even more now. They look like little soldiers all standing at attention…
Soldiers that will smell absolutely freaking amazing!
And something else that will smell amazing…
LOOK!! The lilacs have buds!
Ah sooo pretty, I can hardly wait until they start blooming! ♥
As I said, it was a lovely day, and I so enjoyed being out there digging around in the dirt. Like really, you have no idea.
I think it’s safe to say spring has finally arrived in Minnesota! ☼
