Snow Shots

Could not resist taking some photos of the snow storm. I need to learn how to shoot the bright snow.

This is 'Eastern Redbud'. Slow growing, but nice in early spring.

Inside, though, lots of seedlings trudging right along.

This is a 'Globe Willow' that we planted. It was weakened by the ice storm in 2007 and was bent over frozen to the ground. But we thought it had recovered. Nope. Snow found the weakest link.

The Posting O' The Green

New Beginnings. Onions and potatoes this row. Next row will be a row of cold hardy seedlings: swiss chard, radishes, turnips, and spinach.

Fruit Trees Bloomimg

I think they are blooming too soon. We should have another freeze in April. The pink blossoms are the nectarines. White blossoms on end of row are plums.

Potato plant poking out

Thought I would try to plant some potatoes this year.

Artichokes are back

Looks like three plants made it through the prairie winter. Hopefully they will be big enough to eat this year.

Seedlings Head Start

Here is the beginning of the '09 garden freeze-sensitive plants. Seeds are sprouting. Tomatoes, cantaloupe, watermelon, marigolds, cilantro, basil, and dwarf white zinnias.
