Goodness it has been a crazy spring weather wise. This past weekend our temperatures jumped up into the low 30C and was very humid! We worked to get some of the garden put in, but since later in the week it was suppose to get cooler I decided to hold off on transplanting all of our tomatoes and peppers out. I’m glad I did because it’s now near 0C at night! Some areas even had a little snow this morning. Ick!

While the nice weather was here on the weekend we picked up another load of wood chips, planted our potatoes, beans and squash. Our lilac bush is in full bloom and smells amazing around the yard! The apple trees I was worried about in our Mother’s Day storm pulled through just fine and have been flowering well.

The blossoms on the apple trees are HUGE this year. I guess they really enjoyed the pruning we did!

Our rhubarb is doing very well this year and I’ll be starting to harvest it soon. I’ve grown rhubarb on all of our other homesteads with out any trouble, but it has never grown well on this property. I’ve tried different locations with out much luck. This year we put cardboard down around the plants and covered it with mulch. It’s now doing amazing!

Our gooseberry bushes are starting to set fruit.

The living mulch clover we seeded last year has come back so well. It’s over a foot deep! We will have to give it the first cut soon so I can plant easily.

Our potato patch is in. The garden is a mix of Cal Whites, reds I think Chieftain or Norland and Russian Blues.
