Meadows are still covered in dry grass from last year. If you look closely under the grass there are some Sweet violets and Primroses.
My garden is also dormant. The only color I have in it is from a Primrose bush that has been blooming since February and some Hyacinths that started blooming 2 days ago.
Low temperatures and very strong winds are making my every gardenin day a struggle. It took me almost 2 weeks to sow my earliest vegetables. During the February strong winds over dried my soil so after a week of dry but cold weather I got a concrete plate on top of my soil. I dag my beds 3 times to try and soften the lumps of soil, without much success I waited for the rain. The rain came last week and all it did was turn lumps into sticky lumps.
Well this is where my problem starts. For the second variety I couldn't remember which one I had last year. I had my doubts between Rondo and Progress 9. And of course I got the wrong one. I got 500gr of Rondo peas that grow up to 75cm and need some kind of support.
Now I had no idea where to plant it because when I decided not to plant tall peas I removed all the hooks from my poles and used them for tomatoes. So I decided to throw some peas under my garden fence. Maybe he'll like it there. If the deer don't see it as a free meal.
Because of my mistake I needed another pea variety. The trouble is that at this time our stores don't have any more seeds left so I ended up with a new Hungarian variety Villő. It's a late variety that should be bushy and have big pea pods. We'll see...
The situation in my seedling wonderland is also sticky. Low temperatures are preventing me from keeping my seedling outside. That's why I keep on bringing them in and out of the house.
Also some of my varieties that would usually stay inside have to stay in greenhouse every night so the frost doesn't kill them. Because of the low temperatures my tomatoes haven't germinated yet and I don't have any room to keep them in the house. They are stuck in my 2 shelf greenhouses waiting for the weather to get better.
Right now my greenhouse is overcrowded with pots, All the plants that still haven't germinated are stacked on top of other pots, peppers are stacked on top of those pots and now I have 3 levels of pots inside.
The ones that don't have enough room in the greenhouses are in improvised greenhouses aka. garbage bags.
To make my life even more complicated I decided that I don't want to wait for my shallots to be ready but I'll have some green onions from my Ptuj onions.I found some old plastic egg boxes and thought they would make a great little bulb beds.
|sometimes it's good to have lots of clutter|
Normally I would just leave them in some corner or place them in my flower bed because Nero is a good dog that doesn't walk on flowers. Well Nero is...the other one not so much.
Gizmo(doggie got the name from the Gremlins) is still here. Turning my life into a everyday hurricane. When he doesn't bicker with Nero, barks at every moving thing or chews my sleeves he likes to chew things and walk on my flower beds. He's small and crawls under every obstacle and jumps around like a goat. There are not many flower still and he is light so I don't mind him jumping around...only if he would stop leaving me little presents on top of my flowers. :)
Now that he's here even Nero became a bit childish again so now my yard looks like I have a bunch of kids in it. Toys everywhere.
I'm just waiting for them to decide it would be fun to play with my peppers or chew down bulbs. Year just keeps getting better and better :)
