Still no Harvest, Raspberry Bushes, Planting, Bowl, Note Card & Easter


I thought I would go out and snitch a few lettuce leaves.  Ha,ha,ha! I gave up!  I did buy some Pak Choi seeds to try this year.  Have never planted them before!  In fact, I have never even cooked or used them !!!!!  Hope I like!


A few years ago I bought three Heritage Virus-Free everbearing red raspberry bushes.  They have more than paid for themselves.  I have moved them a couple times.  They multiply and I trimmed them back this past week.  I hope I did it correctly and that we harvest many yummy berries this year!


My "wonderful gardener" put our homemade compost on this little section of the garden and rototilled and raked it for me.  The sun is shining but it is pretty cold outside today and I am debating whether I should try to go out and plant peas!


Saturday was nice and I planted green onions and a little old Kale seed in this row.  If the Kale doesn't come up I won't be out anymore than if I threw it away!  Frugal!  I am still wearing a winter jacket and those are ear muffs sitting beside me!!


Green onions and Kale all planted!


Regular yellow onion sets planted in one of my large barrels.  It said plant three inches apart so I hope I don't have them too close!


I made this lime/lemon salad with cream cheese and pineapple to take for our Easter gathering.  The bowl is almost 53 years old and I like to use it for special occasions such as this.


I like to have a few cards made up ready to send out.  This one says Just A Note on the front with little treble staffs all over the outside. You can't see it very well but it also says Just a note in the lower part of the card.  I put a heart music note on the back with my initials.  I love my piano and on the left inside I put a baby grand piano. (I don't have a baby grand!)  I left the right side blank to write my note.  Stamped Snail Mail on the envelope.  I have six of them ready to go.


Our "littles" Cali and Gracie.  Aren't grandchildren great to have!


OH MY GOODNESS!  Look what the Easter bunny left in the tree!


The Easter Bunny even remembered us!  I hope you had a wonderful Easter celebrating Christ's Death and Resurrection!

That is great that your raspberry bushes are doing so well. What a treat! Your garden area looks all ready to go in the photo with your wonderful gardener. What a beautiful bowl, the green lime/lemon salad looks wonderful in it. So spring and fresh looking. I like your note cards too. I agree, it is nice to have some made up ready to go when you need them. What a beautiful couple, and the Easter Lily looks alright too.

Hi emilysincerely, Thanks! We have enjoyed our raspberry's so much! I had Easter lily's planted outdoors when we lived in Michigan and they smelled so good. I am hoping to plant this one out when it gets warm! Thanks for visiting and come again! Nancy

Josie just finished trimming up our raspberries today. We got our potatoes planted yesterday, but hope to do more this coming weekend if the nice weather holds.

Looks like you had a wonderful day on Sunday. Have a great evening.

HAHA! I was looking at the ear muffs and trying to figure out what they were... it just didn't dawn on me. LOL. Hopefully you'll be harvesting soon!

I hope you like the pak choy. I love it myself, but have decided that I like the baby choys the best. So this year I'm not planting the big kind.
