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.

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.

Winter crops are bolting!  Here is some kale that I will leave in for a couple weeks for pollinators.

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

I was just about to rip the kale out when 3 bees came along. It gets a reprieve.

My peas are growing nicely so far this spring.  Hope they have time to mature before the hot weather sets in.
