My Garden in April

I couldn’t tend to my garden as much as I would like to and glad that it has been raining on a regular basis.

Evening is definitely a bath time for the birds.

The last time I saw them they looked like little white termites underneath the rock, and now they are tiny black ants marching one by one.

These are ready to be harvested, just in time for the Spring planting.

Some of the cabbages that the rabbit ate grew back.

Apparently the rabbit didn’t like buk choy.  The plants seem to spread out instead of growing tall like the one that you see in the store.

The mints grow faster than I could eat, especially now that I haven’t been cooking my normal Laotian meal.

Did you know that holy tree has flowers in the Spring?

And lastly it’s still a Spring photo, Bo’s Japanese Maple.

  1. It’s just amazing to me that so much is growing anywhere. (I had snow on my car again this morning.) The Japanese maple startled me. I had no idea it produced such brilliant little pods. That’s a really nice image.

    • Thanks Gerry, I was surprised to see the little pods also, I guess I never paid attention to it before. The spring planting turns out a lot better than I had hoped for, and I’ve been enjoying making vegetable soup. 🙂

    • Hi seeharhed, we had someone came out to spray and it was termites that I saw. I’m glad they took care of it, not sure what made me look underneath the rock, and I’m glad that I did. I already started harvesting these vegetables and will be planting the summer vegetables in a week or so.

  2. Your garden is coming along very nicely!

    I never knew about the holly tree and their spring flowers. And the Japanese maple have such neat pods. Thanks for giving us such an interesting stroll in your garden.

    • Thanks Cambree. I’m glad I planted the early spring garden, plenty enough for us and the rabbit also. 🙂 I need to harvest these and give the vegetables to my dad and sisters to make room for the summer garden.
