Friday PhotoEssay

This week has been crazy busy – and it has also just flown by! Signs of spring are showing up all over the place in the Demo Garden.

The grapevines are finally starting to leaf out. I was actually a little concerned about them. I had to look for awhile to find a live, green shoot and bud a couple weeks ago.

The strawberries are beginning to bloom. You can see the “king flower” or primary flower (which will become the largest strawberry) blooming here, with all the smaller flower buds waiting to open. In about a month, we will harvest our first strawberries, weather permitting.

The seeds we planted about 10 days ago are popping up all over the place in my office! This one just happens to be a Chocolate Habanero. Sounds hot to me!

A pile of harvested Micro Rainbow Beet Greens I was growing for an experiment. Aren’t they cute?

This pile of micros all Bull’s Blood Beets, hence the uniform pink color.

Have a great weekend! Get out and do some gardening!
