A little below average - about 9°C, and we have plenty of rain, so my garden gets a good first wetting. The containers are 30 cm. deep, and I made some drainage holes 7 cm. from the bottom, so every container has its own stock of rainwater. I'll make more pics when everything starts to look nice, and I'm getting there, very slowly because I can't do very much at a time. I salvaged plants from the broken containers; two hollyhocks, lepedeza burgeri, a lot of parsley and rosemary. Broccoli and radishes are above ground, and someone gave me a basket of narcis and grape hyacinth, so there is some colour to begin with.

My goodness, Chris. You do have high winds. How is the temp?

Nice map! I can see the high wind we have here.

Earth Look at that front! I guess it has rough seas and weather.

Joan, thanks for the informative garden sources.  The information you posted said they want Well Drained Soil.  I remembered last night that I forgot to mention that.  But doesn't almost every plant want that?

Comment by Idaho Spud on March 28, 2015 at 9:42am

Your correct Daniel.  Most of the commenters about that $11 pomegranate tree said it was very small.

Comment by Idaho Spud on March 28, 2015 at 9:40am

Patricia & Joan, I also love to eat lemons, and sometimes I'm a sourpuss as well.

Comment by Joan Denoo on March 28, 2015 at 12:33am

Patricia, and we are not sourpusses are we!

I don't like Washington Delicious at all, too sweet. My favorite is Granny Smith, but then, I love to eat lemon as if they are oranges. I've never tasted Honeycrisp; will keep my eye open for them. I have never tasted a pawpaw, either. 
Daniel, no problem with the typos. 
I love woodchips, except for one problem. The first year or so, they produce fungi that is difficult to control. After a few years, and with anti-fungal powder, it doesn't come back. My wood chips are 2" size. I think they call it nuggets size. It is the largest my supplier has. Mine have been in for 18 years, with a refresher every few years ... and a new round of fungus. I haven't prevented the problem and there may be another species of chips, or a smaller chip that may be less troublesome.  

I spent the afternoon in the garden reading and loving it. The first time I could really sit and feel comfortable. It was in the 60 degrees F.
