Spring gardening

plants1

Despite persistently cold gray weather, it IS spring, and therefore time for planting! From left to right: mint (from last year), mint (new), raspberry canes (two varieties, to go in the ground tomorrow), cherry tomatoes.

plants2Cherry tomatoes (2), Ozark Beauty strawberries, rosemary, strawberries/basil/onion chives, Quinault strawberries.

plants3More strawberries (Quinault on the left, Sequoia on the right). You can see I started to run out of proper pots (see the saucepan, second from right), but I’ll need to repot all the strawberries soon anyway into a 5- (minimum) or 10- (acceptable) or 15- (best) gallon bucket, according to my mother the gardener, so it’s back out again tomorrow. I hope it is sunnier!

What I’m reading: Z: A Novel of Zelda Fitzgerald by Therese Anne Fowler; Far From the Tree by Andrew Solomon; The Night Circus by Erin Morgenstern, read by Jim Dale
