Spring Gardening

Here are some photos of my spring container gardening -- lettuce, spinach and cilantro.

Our Montana spring was cold and wet. I relied on starting seeds indoors..when the indoor temps were barely warm enough to germinate. The other first seedlings in the peat pots are broccoli, daisies, and basil. I found out later, as I didn't mark them well as they germinated ;0

I caught the lilacs that grow near my back door....the heighth of my blue spruce tree on the east side of the house...and early leaves on the maple tree to the south in the front yard -- The Honda FIT at the curb was my Cash for Clunkers score from July 2009 -- LOVE it!

Sharon - Your lettuce reminds me that I need to go out and plant some! Love the beautiful blue Montana sky!

Thanks for stopping by!

Yes, the Montana sky is beautiful, especially in contrast to the other beautiful colors of nature.

I've been toying with planting some more lettuce and spinach -- our daytime temps have dopped into the 70s for the next few days ;) Happy Gardening!
