Spring 2014 Garden Diary, Post 6

All of the seeds in the green house are starting to sprout -- look at these castor bean trees! My dad used to grow these and I remember them as being very tall with a kind of furry seed pod.  Just growing them for the novelty of it -- hope they do well.

John received his new grape vines for this year, he's putting in another row of Cabernet Sauvignon and one row of Shiraz grapes.  We got the Shiraz planted, and will probably get the Cabs in on Friday.  Then John will put up the fencing for them.  He already had the holes dug using his tractor, so it's going to be a pretty quick project.  Last years Cabs are budding and doing well, we only had to replace three of those.

And hey! The pecan trees are all budding!

I got a tour of my brother's vegetable garden today, and I'm about a full month behind him with my garden...he has definitely inherited our Dad's green thumb.  He has a beautiful garden, the kind you just meander through, just to see everything.  Lots of beautiful lettuce that we had for lunch today, too. I wish wish wish I had taken some photos of it....maybe next time!
