My children had their own tray to plant this year. My eldest planted pumpkin, zucchini, broccoli and cauliflower seeds and my daughter planted an assortment of pretty flowers. I am particularly fond of the many pencils they've used to stake their plants. I don't think there are any pencils left for writing, which might be part of some secret plan.
At the beginning of April I planted peas, spinach and radishes outside. My peas came up beautifully but as soon as I took off the cover the quail started to devours them. Those pesky birds! The radishes are growing well, apparently quail don't eat radish leaves. The spinach is (once again) so pitiful I think I will give up on it. I haven't planted anything else outside despite the record breaking warm weather we experienced last week (around 30°C!). My garden beds have been needing more soil and I have just started the hard work of replenishing them one wheelbarrow at a time.
Around the rest of the yard fruit trees are blooming beautiful pinks and whites. The peach tree is thriving and was covered in blooms this year. The daffodils and tulips have bloomed and now we are enjoying purple and white flowers on our wisteria and lilacs. Goodness how I love spring!
