Garden Glory: April 2015

Are seeds are starting to sprout, even amidst the water restrictions and dry weather.  This year we have 5 different kinds of heirloom tomatoes, 3 kinds of climbing green beans and snap peas, corn, sunflowers, herbs, red potatoes, 2 kinds of pickling cucumbers and poblano peppers and a plethora of bulbs to attract the bees and fill my flower vases.

And, of course, Pumpkins.  Seeds saved from last years jarrahdale pumpkins have sprouted up and grown their first real leaves and I planted a few larger orange varieties.

The soil was amended with veggies scraps and egg shells all winter long, organic compost and steer manure.

If needed we will use grey water to suppliment our twice a week water restrictions but so far so good.

Are you making any changes in your gardening because of the drought?
