Signs of Life

From Gardening

Not everything I planted in March is growing very well. I've pulled out romaine transplants and replaced them with an Appalachian greens mix, since the romaine was dead or wilting, but definitely not growing. The peas, on the other hand, are very happily making their way up their stakes. We should see little buds of peas soon!

The strawberries that were planted last weekend made it through the hailstorm and some of the green berries have started to turn red. They won't be perfectly shaped berries since we aren't adding any pesticides, but it looks like we may have strawberries fairly soon!

Last fall, we bought these two raspberry plants with very good intentions, but they never made it into the ground. We are still trying to decide if we want to put them on the fence near the palmetto and herb raised bed, or in a row in front of the blueberries. I'm thinking near the fence, because I have been reading how raspberries hate having their "feet wet," and the middle of the yard can get a bit moist when it rains hard.
