This "holiday cactus" is called, "Naomi". I guess it was still teasing yesterday.
Below are Yellow Sweet Spanish onions. Tom Thumb buttercrunch lettuce was planted between the rows. I also planted Early Wonder beets, Early White Vienna kohlrabi, spinach, and a mesclun mix nearby. The photo of the Mr. Society onions, which are extra early, and not for keeping was accidently omitted.
Lettuce is coming up under the green fabric in the "gamble garden."
This was from earlier in the day, when it was raining, even though there was no rain in the forecast, and I was thinking I wasn't going to get to garden.
After planting in the veggie garden, I did some clean up in the new bed. I took off last year's growth from most of the plants. I just removed the top layer of leaves so far. (We had our daughter, daughter-in-law, and grandson over for supper, so I didn't get finished, but I was out long enough to get a little sunburned.)
I took some dead leaves off of this foxglove. I am pleased it is back for another season.
I think this may be the surprise lily I planted. I can't remember how many I planted, but this is the only one growing. It's marker, made from cut up mini blinds must have come out. Several of them did, but I was able to stick them back. When everything is up well, I'll see if they are hidden or need to come out.
I am most excited to see the Wally day lily is ready to grow. I fell in love with it from the Cottage Garden Forum on ivillage.
