The garden at Groundhog Hill is plowed and ready for tilling and then planting. Big Shout-Out to brother-in-law John Varney for the expert tractor-work! Thanks, Johnny!
Glad I haven’t planted anything yet as today’s Frost and yesterday’s late Season dusting of Snow would have made me regretted it! This Grasshopper has learned much, though. So, I have waited and will continue to wait until the last Frost has Passed Over (timely Pun intended!).
Fingers crossed for the health and well-being of the Peach Trees at Hinton’s Orchard. Hope you have weathered the Weather, Jeremy.
Elsewhere in The Garden Spot of The Universe, I am happy to report that Spring Peas, Spinach and Kale planted at Dad’s house are thriving despite the troublesome conditions of late. And, of course, Tulips are now blooming in abundance…can you hear the explosion of Color? 🙂
And, in exciting news, I have successfully grown Heirloom Tomato Plants from seed for the first time (using Ball Canning Jars and potting soil and Winter sun). These seeds were a gift from sister-in-law Laura, to whom I will be gifting a healthy plant (or three!) around Mothers Day.
Finally for today, I have had a Brain Wave. (I get these sometimes!). How about a Garden Supper from Groundhog Hill Sweepstakes for Summer 2014? Perhaps, six lucky Readers get treated to a delicious home-cooked meal highlighting the freshly picked Veggies from GH. I will have to come up with a location for such an event…If only I knew a local restaurateur! Hmmmm……
More later from Groundhog Hill…Happy Spring!
