wee garden

We have been hammered by spring rains for the last few weeks and our wee garden plants have handled it better than I expected them to. In this particular bed we put in a few different kinds of lettuce, hot peppers and some spinach. The tomatoes, basil and more peppers are sprouting in containers in the house. In a few more weeks they will be ready to go in and hopefully the weather will be warm enough to make them flourish. Our herbs and lavender (mmm my fave) are also doing well in pots. This is our first real garden (outside of pots on the back porch). Now all we need is to figure out where to put up the hammock so we can sit, swing, and gaze at the fruits of our labors.

Not sure what this flower is but it popped up along our sidewalk :D

Not a crocus, I checked :(
hmmmm... My garden got frosted the other night. All the salad plants are fine, but several of the peppers are MAD (aka dead). I need to hit the op shop for some old sheets in case this happens again!
