April Garden Tour 2015

Thank you for visiting Little House in the Suburbs. If you like what you see, please SUBSCRIBE.

When the weather forecast was for thunderstorms again last night with the possibility of hail and damaging winds, I feared for my garden.

And of course I paled at the thought of hail tearing into the spring salad greens.

But it didn’t happen.

The thunderstorm happened, yes, but there was no hail, and the wind was blustery, not devastating. So the mop-headed alliums are still blazing.

The lettuce leaves are still glossy-beautiful.

And the Swiss chard and sweet basil stand tall.

Most of all, the first one of these turned ripe today.

I feel like we ought to have a First Strawberry of the Year Party, wear strawberry hats, put the strawberry on a platter and have a parade around the garden.
