Weekend Garden Link

On this beautiful Friday, let’s bridge the vegetable garden topic by pointing out a smidgen of useful weekend reading. It’s not a garden book but an informative link from Johnny’s Selected Seeds. Click  to see a well-thought out Planting Program for Cauliflower, Broccoli, Head lettuce, Spinach and Leeks.

Why do I like Johnny’s so much? They are quite friendly and a reliable seed source. Plus it's gardening weather and everyone is anxious about getting the veggie gardens underway. But before I shove off to enjoy this stellar day, I couldn’t’ resist adding this Amaryllis image to today’s post.

I simply love the way the punchy red blossoms captured last evening’s sunlight. Plus one bulb has produced flowers over and over again (for at least five or six years). Kept in a dark protected area in the winter and allowed to go dormant, just look at what one bulb can produce. Every couple of years, we take the little side bulbs and spread them out into other pots. The Annie Point is - you don’t need loads of garden space to experience something beautiful in bloom.

So what are your garden plans for this weekend? Hopefully it includes one thing related to nature like a walk in the woods or better yet, gardening and beautifying your outdoor living space. It’s springtime so best enjoy it. And as Voltaire pointed out, “Let us read, and let us dance; these two amusements will never do any harm to the world.” And when in doubt, you can always plant!
