Spring Happenings at Bluebird

Plants are making their way into the garden, admittedly the season is just beginning so we are being cautious and only have peas, onions, and garlic in the ground so far. We have a round of lettuce and kale starts waiting for their big day as well, and I think that will be this weekend when we install them in the 4x4 garden bed with the cold frame over it. A few pics of the action..

The Bluebird is not dead- it's only getting stronger..

This is a simple montage of recent pics of goings on around the Garden.  Expect a more organized post soon with details on the improvements we made to our cedar planting boxes as well as our plans for the vegetable garden for the coming season.

 Come in and play with us!
 Flint is preparing to help "exercise" his little pal Jimbo. This consists of what you imagine it does...
 Teaser pics of our planting boxes, now mounted with wheels and filled with soil for the coming season!

 Fresh soil is so full of promise!

These are just a few of the pics of the weekend project of "Pimp my Planters".  I will post more  photos of the project soon, as well as some pics of the planters with their first crops in them as soon as they go in later this week. Our own improvements to an already solid planter box will really help us get the 2012 growing season off to a great start.
