They are adapted to the climate, soil and area pests. *Attract Beneficial Insects to increase pollination and decrease harmful pests. *Conserve water by using responsible watering methods.

anticipation, bloom succession and seedlings

A few days of good weather, a few showers and everything is ready to POP!
I really need to review my bloom succession and add some late winter/ early spring blooms.
I am not a big fan of bulbs, but perhaps some lithodora and arabis . . .
I transplanted the first round of starts and started more seeds last night. As soon as these seeds start the vegetables will all be in!
The berries are about ready to be netted.
