Liberty and other gardens

Comes back every year.

The rabbits must love these.
They are chewed down to nubs.
And the winter aconites I took a picture of?
Had been eaten by the next day.

And some work to prepare the Liberty Garden.

Switch to the pitchfork.

Before I plant anything,
must get a fence to keep out the rabbits.

  1. Yay!! So it begins! Good for you! (You're not regretting it after all that tough labor are you?! Hope not!)

  2. I miss the reoccuring rhubarb:( Especially now that it is strawberry season in Florida. I love to mix the Rhubarb in with my strawberry preserves to add a much needed tang. I am not sure about Box elder bugs but we have Cockroaches the size of a human hand called palmetto bugs. I couldn't take the time to document their humane removal from our home. there is a skeeve factor involved that is beyond anything you could fathom. This from someone with a science degree:)

  3. Wow, I can't believe you are starting already. I guess i will have to go out and check to see if anything is coming up. I have herbs that stayed green because they were under snow. The dog kennel yard is still frozen and I can't clean that out yet. That was going to be my first big project..i've been waiting a month now for it to thaw. Good luck with your garden this year. Exciting.

  4. I've been fascinated watching my first rhubarb clump emerge this year - it's very odd! I hope it takes and I can enjoy it for years to come too...


Thank you!
