Took the tour with camera in hand -- everything looks more like November than March. These almond blossoms are the best I could find, but they wouldn't hold still to have their picture taken, so the result is as unimpressive as the garden.  Sad

If anybody can come up with something better, we can always change this. They are pretty, but they were gorgeous before the wind and rain got to them.

This is more summer-y than spring: flowers on the aerogarden tomato plant, with a plastic beetle.
March Avatar: Spring Will Be Here Soon -- Promise! Img_0519
Might change it if something fun shows up outside, but it's pretty drab out there. There have been picnic beetles (aka sap beetles) eating the rotting cold-killed kale, but they don't like to stay still for being photographed.

Really?  I can't even imagine what that must be like.  So you get to harvest from the same plants year after year?

Mine get top-heavy and turn into trees, so after I have a nice, new batch of plants, I top the old ones, compost the stalks, add compost to the bed, and plant the new ones. What I love is having kale 12 months a year. There's never a day I can't pick and cook a batch of it from the garden.  Cool

YIKES! Forgot all about this. Gotta go back to the other house, tomorrow, and see how that pear tree is doing. bounce (While I'm at it, I'll take the camera and see if I can find something good for an avatar.)

Don't I wish.  Very Happy Very Happy Very Happy  Still below freezing here and there are two to three feet of snow covering my SFG.  For my area I am predicting Spring will start in June.
