~What's Blooming~

Happy May!
I guess the old saying April showers bring May flowers is really true. Once the rain stopped, I had a few thing bloom.

This started out as a small clump of Columbine, but this year it has spread and filled the area in nicely. Besides Lilacs, they have to be one of my favorite spring bloomers.

Blue Flax -

Forget Me Nots -

And a beautiful Iris which was a gift from a gardening buddy a few years ago.

Our first Farmers Market Saturday, and was a success. We sold all of our Gourmet Salad blend, all of the Spinach, lots of herbs, Tomato plants, and several of my husbands pickled peppers. Compared with last years first market we sold 40% more, so we were really happy about that.
I took my camera, but we were so busy, it didn't get out of the case, so I don't have any pictures to share. Hopefully next week I'll be able to take a break and get some shots.

We've had 4 days without rain, so we have gotten more beds ready for planting. We're hoping to get some tomatoes in tomorrow.

Here's a picture of the pepper bed. Since this has been taken we have the other rows done and ready to plant.

We have 17 bales of straw being delivered Thursday for the pathways, and hoping the rain holds off so we can get it done.

Till next time,
Happy Gardening!

Love your spring bloomers ~ I love Columbine & your irises are the same color as mine though mine haven't bloomed.
