We've got green everywhere! All those little sprouts are becoming sturdy plants. It is very exciting. We've had cooler temperatures than usual and a lot of rain, but the bits of sun in between have enough to really green everything up.
As usual I've gone a little container crazy. (See images below) I have potted plants everywhere! Many garden plants do well in pots because it helps to keep the soil a bit warmer and they can be moved to optimal locations for growing. Besides you can squeeze more in!
I'll probably have to build a hovercraft to move around the garden once everything fills in because I tend to get a little over-ambitious in there!

I was excited to see the roses and the hydrangea starting to bloom. Lots of color!

Want to grow some container plants, but don't know where to start? My favorite resources are Gayla Trail's "Grow Great Grub: Organic Food from Small Spaces" and "Easy Growing: Organic Herbs and Edible Flowers from Small Spaces" (affiliate links) Definitely worth a look!
