Morning Dew

An early start in the garden today means catching fresh dew on your plants…that will soon disappear.

Blair is outside getting ready to transplant several things we grew this winter in the greenhouse. He already managed to get strawberries in the ground one morning before work this week (and before I had even gotten out of bed). He has the spring gardening itch.

We got a book for Christmas called Edible Landscaping from Blair’s grandpa, and it’s gotten us to think about new places in the backyard to landscape with edible plants. We choose a rock ledge to plant the strawberries above, in hopes they’d trail down the side of the ledge one day. We saved the pine needles from our Christmas tree to use as mulch over the strawberries.

The winter greens we planted this fall are still going strong (because we caged them off from cats with chicken wire and covered them diligently through the frosts).

    I couldn’t help but think of you today when I read an article in the Tulsa World. Barry Fugatt, the garden editor, wrote about a “mystery melon” that looked amazingly like the unknown melon you wrote about earlier this year. He called it an “Heirloom cantaloupe,” but said it was an unknown variety to him. So he’s giving out seeds to people who want to plant this and see what they think. Anyway, happy planting to you and Blair.

    Oh my gosh what a beautiful garden! The romaine looks so yummy…The strawberries are going to look awsome cascading down the rock.
