Springs starts TODAY according to the calendar. Hoorah! And as the weather warms and changes, I will be able to get out more with my cameras. I am also hoping to share more about my gardening and cooking adventures. I have been an avid gardener for several years, have kept my own beds as well as a friend’s. So if you have any mid-Atlantic gardening questions, make sure to ask and I will blog your question and my answer along with resources that can help. When the summer market opens up downtown, I like to pick up fresh cooking ingredients and start cooking seasonal meals. Mmm!
Today I am asking for feedback! What do you want to read this spring? What questions do you have about your cameras, your garden, and your cooking?
In other news, we have had a snowy, wet winter! It has been interesting having to drive in the snowstorms to get to my day job. To appease my wintertime melancholy, I bought my first plants of the year at Whole Foods. They have been selling veggie and herb starter plants for $2.99 a piece. I picked up rosemary, cabbage, broccoli, and lettuce. I have already learned that the lettuce is the quickest to wilt between waterings, which is a given really. The rosemary, I suspect, will become a perennial in the garden. It is easy to grow and clip.
Some of my already planted perennials include coralbells, daylilies, a rosebush, and phlox. The phlox has been blighted for a few years and it may not survive well through another summer. The daylilies are the newest addition and were bought at a master gardener’s plant sale last year. They are coming back now with fresh green shoots and I am hoping they will bloom for the first time this year. My dahlia plant from last year has been limping along through the winter in my basement and I hope to transplant it after the last frost date. I am not so great at keeping plants indoors due to a lack of usable space and natural light.
Thank you for stopping by today! If you are experimenting with plants, your camera, and in your kitchen this spring, I hope we can share ideas and questions! Ask away and I will share how-to and answers here on my blog.
