What's Growing: May 4, 2009
We had a lot of rain last week and with that came inches of green sprout growth! Peas are almost 6 inches, beans and squash are leafing, kale has sprouted, spinach is on second set of leaves, and lettuce is almost big enough to eat!
Alex finally convinced me that frost is not going to reappear until the fall so we planted the rest of our green babies outside.
Our potted meyer lemon tree (happily outside since mid-April) has erupted with big scent heavy blossoms. I wish I had a smell-o-camera because lemon blossom is one of my favorite scents.
Raspberry bushes are getting ready to flower.
A pair of cardinals is now frequently a window bird feeder returned to us from my mom. (We bought it for her when she had knee replacement surgery, but the squirrels wouldn't stay off.) We usually watch birds at our feeders in the middle of the yard, but to see them right at the end of our dining room is especially cool.
And, today I took my first bike to "work" ride: delivering packages to the post office. Except the post office was closed for lunch when I got there, so I was able to huff back up the hill with packages too. Are you on a bike to work team?
