Finicky Spring

Spring's been a bit finicky this year. Sunny and warm at the start of last week, snow toward the end. (Boo). But, let's just skip quickly past the white stuff and on to what's new in the gardens. Found some buds on the peony.

Peony 4/15/13
And the daffodils are looking luscious and green. Buds, soon? (Let's hope!)

Waiting for this to flower so I can remember what it is!

The cold frame experiment's going strong. Basil, shallots, and kale outgrew the seedling trays, so I put those in bigger pots over the weekend. Parsley and hot peppers are still rather small. Never heard from the ace peppers. I think the temperatures in this low-tech seed experiment were too variable for them. I'll just get some pepper plants from the local farmer's market in a few weeks.

Northern Tides, in Lubec, Maine, is hosting a book signing with author Ron Pesha. It'll be held April 27, 2013 from 1-3pm. Ron will be talking about his new book "The Great Gold Swindle of Lubec, Maine." If you're in the area, please stop by and say hello for us!

For more news, please check out our facebook page or our Etsy shop. We've started printing our new designs for spring and should have them available soon.

Hope your week's a good one!
