Gardening Sunday - Water and Wait...

Howdy -

Well things are really growing now! And that is really making Hubby want to plant out in the garden. The Beans are more than ready to jump out of their starting pots and spread their roots.

He keeps watching the forecast for the next couple of weeks... and it is just right on the edge of yes or no moving things out to the garden. Tonight we are predicted to be in the high 30's' and not that we don't totally trust weathermen... but if it is just a few degrees colder it wouldn't be good. So I will have to hold Hubby back on moving into the garden. He is really excited about it. We both are. This is our first "real" garden in a long time. And this is our largest! I keep telling him it looks like he is trying to feed the world. We will have a bunch to share for sure! He has had his tractor out there getting the soil ready.

Even the tomatoes are starting to show some good growth, and they are normally really slow to get going.

And then yesterday we saw that the trees are now showing that they want to not be shown up and they have started showing us some growth of fruit!!

Ok, so it is a very tiny peach at this point but still exciting and cute!

We missed a chance at some really good rain again this morning. Huge storms coming right at us - split - and then reform past us. Really frustrating. Hubby keeps saying our fences are just so good that they can't cross over the road and past our fences. LOL HA! If you saw some of our fences you would really know how funny that is. Most wonder how they keep the donkeys in at some points. Other than the three standard donkeys don't want to go anywhere...  We sure need the rain and it keeps missing us here. Neighbors have been getting good rain the last couple of weeks and that is great, hope for us if it is coming in the area.

So how is the weather where you are now? Is Spring knocking at your door? Winter still holding on?
Whatever it is make sure to enjoy some of the outdoors today! Hubby and I are going to try and work a little outside. Been doing some winter clean up and repairs around the farm.

Have a wonderful blessed day -
HUGS and

WOW have those beans grown! I still think we need to start some indoors but DH disagrees. We are a LONG way from setting things out. It was near 60 early this week. This morning. More SNOW , 40 MPH winds & 19 degrees. :(

Those beans will be running out to the garden by themselves soon. ;) I hope you've got plenty of recipes ready to try out. Today was a beautiful day here & quite warm. I'm itching to start work in my garden & I've done a little, but nothing major. We could still get snow, so I'm trying to be patient.
