Garden Update w/ Pictures of Potato Babies & Lime Tree Blooms

After 3 days of rain and cold weather last week we are now back up in the high 70s low 80s this week.  The weather will probably be like that all month.  I will accept the cold as long as it brings rain with it.

The potatoes are loving it and had a major growth spurt while we were gone for the weekend.

I’m still not sure that we got them planted early enough, but maybe we will get a couple of potatoes out of them anyway.

Two weekends ago we decided it was time for some new soil for the lime tree along with some organic citrus tree fertilizer.  It is now full of blooms and we are babying it big time in hopes that we get some limes from it this year.

We are really anxious for the blooms to open.  They are so pretty and smell wonderful!

Spring is definitely upon us and we couldn’t be happier.  We paid $3.99 for a package of cherry tomatoes at the store this week and they were pretty bad quality.  That made us really excited to start harvesting some of our own!
