How is your garden doing? I know our garden is looking really good. Our spinach is a little slow to grow but the lettuce is really taking off. I was able to get the tomatoes transplanted to the garden and put under cover. I also had to transplant the cucumbers, since they were outgrowing the cold frame. My fingers are crossed that they will survive.
Even our small hydrangea is doing well. When cleaning up this fall we noticed one of the branches was buried under all of the leaves, when we went to cut it, we found it had already sent out roots. So we transplanted it. You can see how small it was just a few weeks ago at the end of March, here. This is what it looks like now. I think it’s going to make it.

From your host this week, Jami at An Oregon Cottage:
Oh, happy spring! I’m happy to report we are eating the first of our garden lettuce and spinach to go along with all the asparagus we’ve been harvesting. Such. a. great. feeling. The brassica seedlings (broccoli, cauliflower, and cabbage) have all been planted under the row cover that helps them so much and I’m in the process of hardening off the tomato seedlings to plant out under their cover this next week or so.
And all the spring flowers? They’re so delicate and beautiful. I find myself just wandering around looking to see what new bud or bloom has appeared. It’s nice to enjoy the change of seasons, isn’t it?
