Hellebore yawning and stretching, garlic and columbine sprouting, magnolia budding, crocus showing their stripes.

Its opening day today at Nyack Community Garden! 50 plots of possibilities!

I planted sugar snap, telephone pole and purple-podded shelling peas under tomato cages.

34 degrees last night and the broccoli, kale and cabbage seedlings I left outside (covered!) to harden off last night are hanging their heads in fear and dread. The peas, however, are ecstatic!!

Crassulaceae Ovata Gollum, also known as Fluted Jade, Finger Jade, or Money Tree. Almost bit the dust this winter but recovering nicely now in a brighter window. I purchased this at the legendary Ott’s nursery in PA.
