The honey bee is alive and well, but their population is dwindling.  Pesticides can kill them dead and fast.

PDT Spring!




  Green is the color of spring.  We have had wonderful rains and sunshine and the garden is blooming and giving birth to yummy snap peas and snow peas. The snow peas will be in a stir fry dinner tonight, yummmm ginger root, onion, celery, thin cut cabbage, shredded Romaine lettuce, carrots, bok choy, mushrooms, garlic, and creme sherry wine sautéed chicken, add in a couple tablespoons of oyster sauce stir and our heavenly nutritious dinner will be fast to our lips. Served on rice, you know.

  The onions and garlic and been maturing and soon I will be able to harvest and cook with them. The elephant garlic, which I harvest last year is almost depleted.  The beets and carrots are trying to grow up and be big enough to harvest. The kale has been providing all winter.

  The spring planting will have more garden space, in the area where my husband cut down a tree and Andy, a long used and valued neighbor boy, cleaned the area of it's roots.  A little mulch, a serving of cow manure, a good toss of the soil and in will go my tomato plants.
Now back to my knitting and I must check out Ravelry.com for more knitting ideas and free patterns.
