 Things are greening up nicely in the garden and we're enjoying our time outside. It's supposed to storm this afternoon and then get colder - again. :-( Might have two nights below freezing again this weekend and I hope it won't do any damage to the garden.

Langsam aber sicher wird es immer gruener im Garten und wir geniessen es draussen zu sein. Leider soll es heute Nachmittag gewittern und wir sollen am Wochenende wieder zwei Naechte mit Minus Temperaturen haben - ich hoffe das es dem Garten nichts antut.

Blueberry bushes

Blaubeer Buesche
Gooseberry bush 


 Hannah and I both love sugar snap peas, so we decided to plant three different varieties this year. Hopefully we'll get a good harvest!
Hannah und ich lieben Zuckerschoten und haben beschlossen drei verschiedene Sorten auszuprobieren. 
Hoffentlich koennen wir recht viele ernten!
                                                  The green onions are still going strong!
                                        Die Lauchzwiebeln haben den Winter gut ueberstanden!

    You are SO far ahead of us. It's snowing like crazy today---but thankfully not accumulating.

  6. I love sugar snaps too, but I'm the only one in the house. Love the daffodils in your garden!!

  7. I have some daffodils like yours...with the pink in the middle. They aren't blooming yet, but my yellow ones are. I showed Carroll the pictures of your Gooseberry bush and your rhubarb. He said to tell you that he's envious. :)
