It has been a very cold spring. Things are taking forever to grow which frustrates me. Even factoring in how slowly things are growing, it turns out that I started my tomatoes and peppers about 4-6 weeks too late. They are very, very small. So today I rode my bike to my local nursery--the one that isn't a big box home improvement store--and purchased five tomato plants two peppers, and six basil plants. They fit nicely in the basket on my bike and I rode them home, feeling very Portland.
Spinach. This is supposed to be a plant that likes cold weather, but it isn't growing at all.
One of my columnar apple trees.
My peas! And the trellis I built for them.
Three tomatoes. I put two in Leo's plot. I also ran out of cages, so that one in the front will have to fend for itself now.
Over in Leo's plot: tomatoes and the basil.
The potatoes are starting to emerge.
Asparagus! Getting taller.
