Good morning gardeners,
April burst into Portland with abundant sunshine and summer-like warm temperatures. Spring fever is in full swing! I had a chance to squeeze in some of my own gardening in two small chunks this last week.
The herb garden got these new additions:
orange mint (in a pot!)
The veggie garden got these new additions:
I tucked in some marigolds and annual poppies into the flower bed. Pots of several varieties of fresh zonal and scented geraniums joined my extensive container garden. And we dug some 'Hood' strawberries from our yard to plant a strawberry hanging basket.
If you are curious about what edibles you can plant right now check out this blog post. And, please remember it is still WAY too early to plant tomatoes and other warm season veggies. Even if you see them at nurseries it is not time to plant until mid-late May. Keep on planting your cool season veggies through April.
Happy gardening! Jolie
