spring is the season for....

We've been busy this spring!  We opened on mid April, and have had some good busy nights at the restaurant so far.  We are still only serving Thursday, Friday & Saturday till Memorial Day weekend.  We have had just a sprinkling of inn guests, so far, as is the norm for this time of year.  With our "free time" I have been getting busy in the garden.  I have Calendula, Spearmint, feverfew, hollyhocks and goji berries planted out by the old well.  There is mullein, skullcap, and elecampane next to the trellis.  I just planted some amaranth by the parking lot, and spinach, dandelion, and a spinach substitute by the willow tree.  I have nettles planted, and more sprouted, ready to go into the ground.  This is one of my FAVORITE greens...  Most of my tree seeds popped, and they will spend the year in the protection of pots, and get planted next year!  I have chaste tree, sea buckthorne, slippery elm, and horse chestnut.  I'm having a hard time getting the ginko tree seeds to pop, but no wonder, they are huge and solid, so I can see that it would be difficult to sprout!!!   I have lots of other seeds popped in the green house, just waiting for the garden beds to be ready for them...more weeding and spreading compost!!  Then I will start again with more herbs and veggies!!  The vegetable garden is getting plowed today, so will soon be ready for the veggies...any ways...back to work!!!!  Happy spring :)
