First Steps...

It looks like 2 of the 4 lavenders are coming back.
The two that didn't make it include one from Trader Joe's and Lavendula x intermedia.
When they get plants at the nursery, I'll see if I can add a new one.

The bed got these seeds:
Sunflower Ruby Eclipse

I put in seeds for the trellis:
Hyacinth Bean - Ruby Moon Lablab purpureus
Bean Pole Runner - Scarlet Emperor Phaseolus coccineus
and some sweet pea - 3rd year a charm, right?

Sprinkles in the beds are:
Zinnia Cut and Come Again Zinnia elegans pumila
Zinnia Solar Flare Blend Zinnia elegans
Zinnia Fireball Blend Zinnia elegans
Bachelor's Button Black Magic Centaurea cyanus
Sweet William Double Blend Dianthus barbatus

And there are flurries in the forecast for this weekend....

Looking back, looking forward

I love that I have this journal of every gardening year.
Today is my big day to go and do the bed cleanup, and I was feeling like I'm a month late...
but no, it's only a week later than it was last year.

We had a crazy rainy snow storm on Friday March 20, officially on the calendar as "First day of Spring"... whatever!

So let this be the first day of documenting the 2015 gardening process!!

2015 Garden

I was concerned when the high school pushed out mulch delivery from March to April, that I'd have sprouting weeds while we waited the extra weeks.
Don't think we have anything to worry about...
