The trees are finally leafing out, now to find something to plant in my hanging pots.
The neighbors crabapple is stunning this year, mine has lost most of it's blossoms already.
John tilling the east garden, most of which will be planted with native prairie plants that are useful for my natural dye plants.
Lettuce, strawberries, chard, basil, tom thumb peas, and arugula in this raised bed.
Various herbs along with three cabbage plants that I"m thinking of moving elsewhere, so I can plant more dill in this bed.

Woke up to some snow this morning.
Well at least the raised vegetable beds are getting some much needed moisture.
My more tender herbs are covered by plastic buckets.
Traffic is moving slow enough that I was able to get a clear shot of the intersection during rush hour.

Got these lovely livestock tanks this afternoon from an old friend of John's. They are delightful in their shape, patina, and the fact that they will keep my madder root contained!
In addition to the livestock tanks, John also got a yard of composted horse manure for our gardens.
He's beat from all of the shoveling and moving of topsoil and manure, but I'm thrilled to have everything in place for the growing season! This weeks forecast is rain, rain, and more rain.
All three beds are now dressed with composted horse manure.
