Early May

Lisa celebrates spring.

The garlic has all come up. First time in a few years. I planted it deeper last the fall. The onions are also up. The garden has been dug, with manure mixed in. I planted three rows; beets, early lettuce and late lettuce. Everything has been planted thick so we can enjoy the thinnings. The tomatoes, basil and cannabis are doing well inside and I can’t wait to put them out so they don’t have to be cared for. An inside gardener I am not.

A good start to oncoming summer.

If I take the picture in the right light I can obliterate the second homes and condos that line the shores of Lake Windermere.

    I’m wanting to grow beetroot myself – are they hard to grow? Do you have to grow them from seed? and, if you do, do you have to do all that potting them in a shed then putting them outside nonsense (I can’t be bothered with that and just put all my seeds in the ground at hopefully the right time then water the well etc.)

      Beets are very easy to grow. No need to start them inside. Just put the seeds in. I plant them thick so we can enjoy the leaves when I thin them. You should give them a try.

        Those are exactly the ones I picked in the shop this morning – couldn’t remember what you said but I went by the American name as I remembered you’d said an American name!

      Watching the garden grow is a favourite pastime of mine, however I sometimes enjoy stressing the plants instead of giving them TLC. 😀 Lisa says, ‘Thank you, Julie!’
