WOO HOO!

I started this blog to get to know other gardeners and track my own garden's progrss. It is a wonderful way to honor the stewardship I have over my plot of ground I have been blessed with. Thanks for stopping by!

Blooming Tuesday!


Thanks for Jean for hosting this for us every week - be sure and check out the other gardeners all over the country - so fun to see what is growing in different zones.

We live in zone 4 but some of our yard I can sneek in zone 5 plants because of mico climates. For for the past 3 days it has been snowing! We get snow sometimes in May but rarely this late.

My house is clean as per the sign above! Because of the snow and the cool temp's. Nothing has changed from last week and I didn't know what to share today. Then I remembered the plants hanging out in the car for protection.


I went to the nursery and bought bought the tomatoes, peppers, and potatoes we need for our garden. There weren't any people there - who could blame them - there was a blizzard outside! It was a perfect day to shop. The whole area got the storm from Montana down to south of Provo, Utah. (It is 100 miles to Yellowstone going north and 250 miles south to Provo + 350 miles that is a HUGE area.)

I realized then I could tell you about one of the four pot area's. I try to get what I need for them one area at a time, get them planted and then move onto the next one I used to buy it all at once and then I was overwelmed and didn't enjoy it - this is supposed to be fun! It is supposed to warm up the end of the week so I am ready to plant.

The next post is filled with some garden art ideas - it was snowing on Saturday and I had planned to work outside - so I spent my time looking at others gardens - I mean I can only clean my house so much!!!

Gosh, I'm so sorry it's been snowing. You must be so anxious to get out and start digging. Looks like you're going to have a lot of fun soon. Oh, since I'm in planting zone 6, my house is dirty! lol.

What is with this snow in May stuff. We've had it to. Today a storm blew through -- mostly wind -- but cold! I have plants keeping warm in my garage.

Enough ranting. Your flowers look beautiful. I imagine they will love getting their little roots planted!

Well at least the plants look warm & toasty! Blizzards in May? That is crazy stuff. :)

Looking forward to how your potatoes go- I haven't tried them yet, but really want to. Any tips that you have are appreciated! :)

If you get a chance, come check out my tomatoes...

I love the photo of the back car seat. I hope the weather soon warms up for those beauties to be planted. Can't wait to see the blooms. Looking forward to the yard art.

Great cover for your plants! We are having summer heat this week and it's almost too hot to garden. Jean

Wow, snow that is amazing! We have been getting a lot rain here and lower temps than average. It has been nice weather for my plants to get settled in that I bought from the store:) Have a great day!!

I can't imagine snow in May; it's 96 degrees here right now! I love the sweet potatoe vines; I got them for the first time last year, the lime and a purple that's so dark it's almost black, I fell in love with them and bought them again this year.
