Lovey Spring Day

There's nothing like spring and lovely days. Here's one for you in our garden. I snapped these this morning in the midst of doing a ton of re-organizing (with daughters help).




I love having little color spots throughout my garden.
These pansies are in Box # 1



I love birds, but NOT when they proceed to think that I'm the supplier of their daily ration of lettuce. Trying to be resourceful, I used a picnic food cover to keep the birds out. It's working.

Sweet snap peas. One little granddaughter loves to find them and eat them right then and there. I'm delighted she loves them.


I'm watching my heirloom tomatoes grow bigger by the day. The only challenge is - to get to them before the birds do.

I planted spinach seeds a little bit later than planned, but was absolutely delighted when those little heads cropped up. Up until a day or so ago, my spinach was flourishing. Some dad burn bird (again) thought it was lunch.


The little picnic food covers worked so well for my spinach, I took my little ol' self to Ross and found a fresh supply. These sure add some extra fun color touches to the garden.


Again, Okra - and birds nibbling some lunch.

I love your colorful picnic covers to keep the birds from picnicking on your yummy produce! What a GREAT idea! I'll have to run out and see if I can find some too.
My main garden is a large plot out in the yard. However, I have a 'salad box' built in to the deck, just out the back door that's about 4' x 6'. I'm planting many greens and my tomatoes & peppers in there. Oh, and the garlic that I forgot I planted last year that is now coming up. (Last year, the same box was my 'salsa box', in which I grew tomatoes, peppers and cilantro.)
