The young birders and I found this nest in a tree patch
and look WHOO's peeking out!
I hope we will get to see owlets in the future.
The only thing I've planted in my veggie patch so far are onions, peas, and lettuces. It's still pretty chilly in the nights and we aren't past our last frost date quite yet. I bought some nice herb plants that are ready to go out to the garden when the time's right. In the meanwhile, I've been snipping and using the lemon thyme in so many ways -- tuna patties, chicken salad, on lettuce salads, and in skillet dinners. Next I want to try it in my Kukicha tea for a lemony flavor. My DIL, JJo thinks it would be a good infusion for water. I have never had lemon thyme before and it is now a favorite of mine! I may have to go buy myself another plant.
The asparagus has been popping up like crazy. We've had a few light showers and the daytime temps have been pretty warm, so it's happily producing and giving us some delicious green stalks to put in salads and to pan roast. We love our asparagus here.
I need to get potatoes in the ground, but I'll wait until my chicks are in and pick up seed potatoes from the feed store at the same time. There was a delay in the chicks arrival, but they are on the way. Are you gardening yet? Potting up flowers or herbs? What's springing up where you are?
