Garden Journal 3/20/11: Spring Has Sprung!

Lilacs! (see them in all their sweet scented glory here)

Five more photos after the jump. . .

Hello, chives (growing tips and how to make herbed yogurt cheese here)

Greek Oregano (wonderful in homemade Italian sausage; read about growing it here)

Sedum Autumn Joy (I love this easy to grow perennial; see it flowering here)

Spring green garlic (I'm crazy about this stuff; read all about it, plus my easy Green Garlic Fettuccine recipe here)

Daffodil delight ! (lots more photos of these cheerful blooms here)

Happy, happy. Grow, grow.

So what's going on in your spring garden?


  1. Yaay! I haven't seen much in my garden yet, but I did notice that the forsythias were getting some buds!

  2. A few daffodils here and there. Other folks have Forsythia. Even saw a very early flowering fruit tree in full bloom yesterday. (New Jersey, a short distance east of Phila.)

  3. You're so lucky! I'm so jealous! It's snowing in NY right now. Big wet flakes. The tips of my daffodils are just beginning to peek out, but we have been seeing some interesting migrating ducks in our pond. That's the extent of spring around here.

  4. Oh, glorious Spring. But, we are still having cold rain. I can see my beautiful daffodils from my windows, though, and have already cut chives which grow near the back door. Dash out, dash back. Forecast for yet more rain here, but I am keeping my fingers crossed for April.

  5. Isn't spring wonderful! I'm so joyed when I start to see new growth from my old friends. I noticed that my grapevines are starting to leaf out this week.

    Thanks for the great pictures and tips, you've got a great blog.


  6. Hi Susan,

    Happy Spring!! I noticed my some asparagus spears poking through the dirt in my garden yesterday. Yipee, Spring is definitely here!


  7. Spring? What? There's snow covering the crocuses and it's supposed to be 18 degrees tonight. BOO.


March 2013 update: My apologies for the inconvenience - I know word verification is a pain - but I've had to turn it on to help stop the ridiculous number of anonymous spam comments I've been getting every day. Thanks for your understanding.

Welcome to! Thanks so much for taking the time to write. While I'm not always able to reply to every comment, I receive and enjoy reading them all.

Your feedback is greatly appreciated, and I especially love to hear about what's going on in your own garden. I know, too, that other readers also delight in reading about your garden successes, failures, helpful tips, and lessons learned. Feel free to leave comments on older posts!

I try my best to answer all questions, but sometimes it takes me a few days to get to them. And sometimes, I'm sorry to say, they fall through the cracks, and for that I sincerely apologize.

I look forward to hearing from you and hope you enjoy your visits to my kitchen garden!
