A snapshot sort of Sunday

Goodness!  Another week gone.  I swear time goes so fast in the spring.   I love doing these snapshot Sunday posts — it’s fun to see how plants change from week to week, and what things were like! This week’s post makes number five.

Since it rained quite a bit, I didn’t get to take too many photos.  I think a lot of these were taken on the same day, but I think they’re still pretty in some way!

Stealth potato. UGH.

One of the rogue potatoes that keep popping up in raised garden bed #1.  They’re pretty, but I don’t want them there!

So pretty! :)

My courgette buds are growing!  The one on the left will be a female flower, and eventually a courgette (hopefully), and the skinny stemmed one will be a male flower.

Possible rock crop plant?

A close up of one of the  ‘Name that Plant‘ plants.   I’m afraid to repot the mystery palm in this container because I don’t want to break these little guys…

Sleeping in his favorite spot

Moose loves sleeping on this old computer desk we have on the front porch.  It’s pushed up to a window pane so it’s a bit sheltered, and the sun makes it nice and warm.  I love seeing little kitty toes!

Too much lettuce!

My lettuces are definitely ready for me to eat!  I picked a lot of the red today and will start on the green in bed #1 tomorrow.

First lettuce picking

The first red lettuce of the season at now & gwen! :) It’s enough for about four eight salads!

sweet & sour veggies

I meant to do a recipe post this week, but got distracted.  I’d forgotten I took this picture of a quick sweet & sour stir-fry I did.  Ben doesn’t like many veggies (more for me) so I cooked his up with chicken, and had whatever veggies I had in the fridge for mine (along with some of the chicken).   I like how the steam is all wispy in the top of this one.

Looking at that last picture has made me extremely hungry!  It’s time for me to go have my first salad of the season.

How has your week gone?  How are your gardens looking?

    Your mystery plant is a Sedum…don’t know which one. It’s pretty indestructable and spreads too. Your plants are looking fab.

    I’m super jelous of your courgette. I’ve put one in am going to buy more. I want to have tooo many courgettes so I can freeze them for later in the year when the sell for crazy prises! Did you buy a seedling or grown one from seed? What type is he? thanks.

    He’s not grown from seed, sadly — I had some seeds left from last year, but they didn’t sprout, so I decided to buy.

    He’s a Zorro variety, I think! A green one. It was so hard for me to pick between green or yellow. I am not good with decisions on the spot in a garden section. I tend to want it all! Lol! Luckily Ben’s Dad was with me and I just grabbed one and ran, the first time (she got stolen) and then Ben was with me for round two. :P
