Welcome reader to my blog - a mixture of this and that. Now that we are living in a retirement community in downtown Columbia, MD my personal gardening activities are somewhat curtailed. I still enjoy visiting gardens, reading, watching wildlife on my walks, traveling, and occasional food commentary. Please leave a comment if you feel inspired to do so. I read every one of them.

Harvest Monday - May 5th

Thursday of last week I was able to pick lettuce directly from the garden for the first time for our evening meal.  I harvested two types: butter crunch and green ice.  They made a delicious salad.

Tomatoes could be looking better.  After Mother's Day they will go into the garden.  I've been hardening them off and exposing them to natural sunlight.

How does your garden grow?

Gardening for Granny.

Very lovely greens, and your tomatoes will be fine once they're transplanted. I always burry them to the "neck" and let them drink fish emultion for first 3 weeks and they take off very fast.

Lovely greens! My tomatoes are off to a good start this year but unfortunately it will be at least two more weeks before I'll be able to set them out.

It looks like we are both getting our first lettuce now. I always love the spring lettuce. It tastes so much better than the lettuce later in the season.

That lettuce looks delicious. Not one little leaf showing signs of munching caterpillars.

That lettuce looks SO good... We don't do that kind of gardening --but put all of our energies into our flowers/plants. Actually, in this community, we are not allowed to have 'food' gardens in our yards ---but they provide a community area where you can go and have a garden.... We just never have chosen to do that... Not enough time!!!!

Our first ROSE bloomed yesterday... So pretty... AND--we have lots of Irises blooming now that the tulips and daffodils are finished.
