We have had a lot of humidity and rain so the plants are happy.
I noticed a couple of tiny cucumbers showed their pretty faces too.
There is nothing like picking veggies knowing you grew them, and enjoying their fresh, delicous flavor.

Hard to believe we had a frost warning a week ago which was preceded by temps in the nineties a week before that.
I still have plants to put into my garden that I haven’t been able to find the time to plant. I guess that’s what weekends are for.
..if you are looking for me, you know where I will be.
My plants took a bit of a beating from hail last week but otherwise things are shaping up.
Wow. Isn’t it June?
I am hoping they are wrong. We will see what happens.

The Gearcor Company Garden is still in the planning stages since the weather will not cooperate at all. We have gone from really cold weather to very warm with so much rain you couldn’t think of building raised beds out there just yet. But soon we will.
So we continue to dream of the day when our seedlings will be able to be planted outdoors. In the meantime, we have transplanted some and they all continue to grow.
And we wait…..
our mystery seeds are germinating at last.
* We are using Haven Brand Compost Teas to nourish our plants and we are happy to say they are now available from GardenShoesOnline.
Here at Gearcor we have a great group of folks and we are all interested in putting in a garden that all of us can reap the benefits of. Click here to see the beginning post about our company garden.
I think the plastic that Pete put around them with a bit of heat blowing in has really made them grow well.
Our very own Michael has taken it upon himself to see that they are watered and well taken care of.
We have discovered a gardener’s soul in Mike.
All this planting has inspired him to learn more about it and be sure these little guys flourish.
Between Mike and Pete the plants are well taken care of.
All of us are impatiently waiting to get our hands dirty!
Check back to see our progress!

March finds me with very little to show in my garden, or so I thought. March came in like a lion~we just had 20 inches of snow a week ago and since then nothing but more snow and then rain which is causing high rivers and flooding.
But today as I ventured out for a walk, I noticed these cute little snowdrops ready to bloom. I was so surprised because I didn’t even know they were there. A little farther into the yard and I found my pussy willows ready to bloom.
There were buds on the lilac bushes as well as some irises greening up a bit. A few random daffodils and hyacinths are poking through the dirt with their yellow leaves looking for some sunshine. I have to say I was very surprised to find all these signs of spring when there has been such foul weather of late.
I expected to show only dried sedum and my snowman this month, but I was pleasantly surprised today.
The weather is supposed to be mild today so I will be out there looking for more delightful signs of spring springing. Hopefully March will follow the saying and go out like a lamb….
a girl can dream can’t she?
Eventhough it was very cold out I went outside to see where we want to put our company garden in at Gearcor.
The snow was deep but in my mind I could see flowers and vegetables growing , while butterflies and bees swoop in and out pollinating to their heart’s content.
You see it don’t you?
Don’t worry, you will.
Nothing here to flaunt or fertilize yet for Fertilizer Friday, but I will keep you posted on our progress planning, planting and enjoying of a company garden here at Gearcor. Stay tuned….
