Notre jardin ..2015/Journal~
Another reason I have loved blogging is that it is such a great time line/journal of what's happening in the gardens..
We don't have year round gardening here..the season starts about now~
Blooming are the scillas..pulmonarias..anemones..daffodils,ferns,forsythia.
I have already planted a few things..geraniums..pansies..cleomes..herbs..
M.Daoust told me I could.
And I believe him.
Our baskets are hung..and some of the garden ornaments are out..not many..I find they stick out like sore thumbs w/ out greenery etc..
But it's all coming along.
I think I cried here about a huge tree I loved having to be chopped down,,200 yr old double headed fir.
The huge stump drove me crazy last summer towards the end..and I had no idea what to do with that spot.
One morning Jacques suggested a raised bed for veggies..certainly enough sun..
So he ordered a kit..and installed it for me..
Frédérick went to get a truck full of earth..brought it and put all the earth in for us..♥
OMG God bless our son-in-laws. Alain helped take down that tree.
Thursday morning I decided to plant in six sections.
I have 3 tomato plants..cherry..yellow grape..and Pineapple heirlooms.
A purple pepper plant:) Said Peter Piper;)
Regular baby spinach.seeds..
Swiss Chard Bright Lights...seeds
And French Radishes♥ seeds.I am smitten.S-M-I-T-T-E-N..
See my giddy garlic?
I love it.
It will be fun to try and grow some vegetables..It's not a big garden..just enough as I have the others to maintain.
The dahlia tubers I saved from last year were freaking me out not showing any sign of growth so I bought another bag of tubers..2 colors only this time.
See that salad?
I cannot wait to make it again for family.
I ate it as my meal..Jacques added BBQ'd sausages for him.
You can find this salad..From the book What Katie Ate.....at Penny's House.. Lake Lure Cottage Kitchen.
It's rather delicious..Come on..Couscous,chickpeas,toasted almonds,lemon,mint,pomegranates.
What is there NOT to love..just hope I can find another Pom..this one was sooo small..but the seeds were gorgeous.
I know you will enjoy this spectacular salad.I kept picking at it♥
Happy Mother's Day..♥ I always always think of my mom..but Mother's Day..well I just wish I had had her so much longer ...
God gave us lovely daughters..and I see bits of maman in both of them.
Oh she would have been nuts about the Littles too.♥
