Chris, I excited for you that you are getting your hands into the soul and back to growing your garden!

Yesterday my gardening was limited to mowing grass and saving the clippings to mulch around trees and bushes. Looks much neater today.


Plums are finished blooming. I cant tell if there is fruit set. Same for peaches. Pears near peak bloom. Apples just beginning, It's nice. Needed this time of year.

After doing some research and reading Joan's comment, it appears my climate zone is too cold for pomegranates. I have enough fruit trees and bushes as it is. I'll never have another cherry tree, however. I grew up with them--a favorite of my mother. Why, I don't know. Pitting them was the pits. Plus, they were too sour for my taste.

I've been watching that wind map and it seems as though there is a lot of activy of wind going through the English Channel. Are you have high winds now.

Your planter boxes sound wonderful! You do a great job to get everything all assembled with soils, boxes, drainage holes, etc.

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?

Comment by Plinius on March 29, 2015 at 2:01am

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

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

Comment by Joan Denoo on March 28, 2015 at 11:40pm

Earth Some of us are getting a nice warm flow from the south.

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.
