May Day, May Day.

No posts since last year and now two in one day? What fresh hell is this?

I came back from my Toronto 10K/Eddie Izzard weekend and found that my back yard had turned yellow. Un peu problematique. It’s a delicate operation to clean up, especially in the big box (heh) because my carrots are finally coming up (the ones I put in early April and the ones I put in two weeks ago are at the same “blink and you’ll miss ’em” stage.

Little green carrot shoots surrounded by tree seeds.

Keep in mind that it is May 3. Some of my plants are doing stupendously.

The beans plants and corn ( yes, I am starting some of it indoors, which is a controversial thing to do, but eh, I thought I’d try). These are only a week old.

This wee self-watering trays from Lee Valley are awesome, BTW.

The roots are almost as long as the plants themselves are tall.

Peas and flowering beans (three weeks old)

In the left corner are the peas and along the rest of the back of the box are the flowering beans. Cant wait to see if theyll climb the wire.

Radishes (the green things on the right – what a terrible photo. Sorry.)

The radishes are on the right. They are a month old.

No sign of the beets I planted. The onion sets I put in three weeks ago are starting to peek out. I should plant some more this week.

And now….name that plant!

Seriously, yo, I need this blog to keep track of things. I planted a heap of bulbs last year (mostly daffodils, tulips, and crocuses of various types – there was a Vesey’s sale), but I can’t remember what these are. Any ideas? Or should I just wait until they bloom?

Note to self - take notes.

Sorry for the mishmash going on. I will endeavour to make more theme-y/organised entries from now on. Sometimes.
