Garden 2012

I have not been that diligent in the gardening department this year. I did not start any seeds indoors. I just sowed them directly in the pots outside.

This plant survived the winter.

Moreover my favorite spring starter Chard leaves where already sprouting when I was ready to sow some seeds. The winter has been mild enough that the ones from last year did not die off.

I just added a few more seeds and they have been growing good. If you are being reluctant about growing try Swiss Chard they are very forgiving and they keep giving back starting May through October.

The new growth.

The gooseberry bushes planted couple of years ago as tiny 6 inch seedlings are bearing fruit.

Can you spot the berries?

These are pretty bushes too!
