Checking On The Garden - Wordless Wednesday

Spring is almost here!  Yay!!!


Checking on what's sprouting in the garden with Benny.

He recovered so nicely from the 4 lb. bag of M&M's he ate on Christmas Eve.

Buds are appearing on our trees and the cherry blossoms are becoming full.  The first flowers of the season to show their pretty faces in our garden are the mini daffodils.

It's been way too cold and wet in the Pacific Northwest to plant anything yet, however our hearty rhubarb stays strong year after year.  (And I have a terrific Strawberry Rhubarb pie recipe.  Can't wait for these stalks to grow!)

Considering how many seed packets we have, this Spring and Summer should be very busy in our garden.  I can't wait!  Are a gardener?  Or, do you love to enjoy the efforts of a gardeners work?  (I'm a little of both.)

I'm taking part in Wordless Wednesday at Tales of a Pee Dee Mama.  Join us by adding your blog link! :->

  1. Glad to see Benny has recovered from his M&M overdose. I guess he's scoping out the garden for more healthy eats now. Smart dog!

    1. He's eagerly awaiting the tomatoes that my husband works so hard on. We've tried everything short of barbed wire to keep him away from them - he's a tricky boy!

  2. We are looking forward to spring as well, but it seems a long ways off. Just got half a foot of snow today. Our garden seedlings havent been started yet aside from three romaine plants we wre growing in our kitchen windowsill. Rhubarb is delicious, I hope ours survived the winter!

    1. More snow?! Oh no. I bet your rhubarb will make it. Do you have a rhubarb recipe you could share? :->

  3. We live in the Pacific Northwest too and have not planted anything yet either. We also have a rhubarb plant that comes back but I never grew up with it so never knew what to do! I would love that recipe of yours. Do you plan on posting it when you make your pie ;) please! :) I love your pictures and I have loved our two warm days! Nothing is better than spring and fall here!

    1. Hi Carri! I agree, Spring and Fall are excellent here. And yes, I will post the recipe for my Strawberry - Rhubarb pie. If you like sweet, with a bit of tanginess, you'll love it - especially served with vanilla ice cream :->

  4. I love this Wordless Wednesday idea! AH...your picture of rhubarb made me hungry. Bonne Maman makes a rhubarbe confiture (rhubarb jam to the non-French speaker) that is out of this world. I picked up some in Paris back in May, and am still savoring it because it's not available in the U.S. I bet you could make your own though. And one of the best desserts I've ever had was homemade rhubarb cobbler. Delicious!!
