From the La Petite Maison blog, Caroline has an excellent review of our garden this spring.
We’ve put in lot of hard work with the garden since we moved, and this spring we’re really starting to see the results. The picture above is the first of our fruit trees to blossom this year. It’s an apple, Belle de Boskoop. Our Reine de Reinette is not far behind. We have a couple of older local varieties, which are taking a little longer to bloom, but I’m sure they’ll get there. We’re nowhere near past the danger of heavy frost yet, so they may be very wise to hold back!
The fruit bushes that we planted at the same time are all doing well, and the redcurrants in particular seem to be forming little sprays of what will (hopefully) become fruit. The perennials that we bought from Campanule and Compagnie last spring are all re-shooting, and looking very healthy.
We have a small plastic greenhouse this year…
