    Good luck, peas! I think you might need it this year. Hopefully there will be no more freezing nights.

    You got Spring & we got Autumn. Drats I wish we had Sroing too. Ain’t Veggie gardening the greatest???

  3. Tony McGurk says:

    Sroing really means Spring, stupid keyboard…

  4. S. Le says:

    You are such a busy woman! Fantastic. I’ll send you my address in exchange for some Spring Peas, yeah?

  5. YEAH!
    YIPPEE!
    HUZZAH!
    SPRING SPRING SPRING SPRING SPRING!

    Good luck with the gardening 🙂
    I never had good relationship with plants

    Peas are supposta be pretty tough, Binky. The ones I planted on a whim on a lusciously warm Saint Patrick’s Day afternoon have started popping up, despite the April Fool’s Day snowstorm.

    It sure is, Tony — or at least, it sure will be, once I’ve been at it for five years or so and can relax a bit. I’m still a very nervous parent to all these newborn plantlets!
    Oh, and “Sroing” is exactly the sound that the kohlrabi seedlings (closest to duct tape, final photo) made when they burst out of the ground. Very impressive for seeds from a packet that had been marked down to 25 cents!

    Sure, S. Le, as long as it’s a Canadian address — not sure I have the authority to send fresh produce across the border.

    Thanks, Stephanie! That’s what the hollyhock seedlings were telling me just this morning. The green onions, on the other hand, are emerging like folded jack-knives. I suspect they have BBC accents and never touch in queues.

    Don’t be too hard on yourself, Novroz. You may find that your vegetarian pets know something that they’re not telling you… 😉

  8. Looks like you’ve been busy! Fingers crossed for sunny warm days. We had an inch of snow here yesterday.

  9. Binky says:

    St. Patrick’s Day? Here we’re supposed to plant on May 24th to ensure they’ll be no frosty nights, though we can usually plant sooner than that.

    Yay spring!

  11. lavenderbay says:

    Poor you, Barefootheart! For once, the weather forecasters aren’t predicting that we’ll get Ontario’s leftovers. So far, they’re calling for lows in the pluses on Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday!

    Sure, and it was the fine weather — and perhaps the glass of Dublin’s finest — talking that day, Binky. But peas, you know, they’re magically delicious!

    You said it, Christina! Even our crocuses are almost in bloom. 😛

  12. Tony McGurk says:

    I’m glad my Sroing was useful then

    How time has flown. I remember when you were just heading into winter, like it was last Thursday. Young veggies are so cute. I hope they are all still behaving themselves. I found a 1 cent(?) coin from Canada on the footpath the other day, and thought of you and E.g.

  14. lavenderbay says:

    Hi, Tony! The sroinging kohlrabies want to tell you how very brave they were to be planted out into the garden the other week. They wore pop bottle cloches for a few days, but are now holding their own.

    Hi, Livingisdetail! I haven’t been in the blogosphere since April 7th (or 8th?). Talk about time flying! New garden beds have been dug, old ones nourished, some seeds sown, some plants planted, others still hanging out either in the kitchen (appx 20 degrees) or the mudroom (appx 24 degrees). Rain is being predicted for Wednesday and Thursday — hopefully I’ll have a chance to make a few virtual visits then.
    Btw, if the coin is copper, it is indeed a penny — that’s what we calls ’em. The Québecois call them un cent noir, a black cent.

  15. Binky says:

    A month without a new post! The Wombie Alliance is threatening to take action!

    Laverderbay…we miss you
