Hubby brought me in a handful of fresh home-grown radishes from our backyard garden.
So I grabbed one and ate it.
Tender and delicious. 😋
Not bittter at all.
Springtime is a lovely time of year.
I recently bought myself a Galaxy 4 watch and I thought there is no better photo to put on my new watch-face than hubby and his radishes!
So we decided to do No Mow May, a movement to help pollinators as they come out of hibernation.
Our intentions were good. Nevertheless, there are rules in town. By the latter part of May we wound up mowing our front lawn to avoid a fine.
The backyard is a different story.
I could hardly believe how quickly grass grows!
The grass and weeds seemed to take over at such a pace! It was wild!
The rabbits, squirrels and chipmunks just loved it!
When grass grows too long it is quite a chore to try and cut it down.
We will continue to trim our backyard grass and weeds.
We do not spray our plants or lawn with pesticides nor do we harm the ecological environment with noxious chemicals to keep the bugs at bay.
It was good to do No Mow May for a couple of reasons.
We gave the pollinators a break so they could enjoy the long grasses, and we didn’t mow the backyard for a month!
I’ve seen some bumble bees in our garden.
That’s another good sign that we did OK with No Mow May!
P.S. We saw a hummingbird bird in our backyard for the 1st time. Even though we don’t put out hummingbird feeders we have flowers for them!
I planted yellow squash, beets, cherry tomatoes and flowers in raised garden beds to keep the weeds down.
Hubby uses straw-bales as mulch as well, to keep weeds down to a minimum.
This year he is using plastic bottles to create mini-greehouses to keep the rabbits out!
Right now green onions are on the table everyday in most every dish I cook.
Springtime is full of happy hours spent outside, even if it means repairing the outdoor spigot with plumbing thread tape and new washers.
Plants need fresh water too!
Today we had our dwarf lilacs trees trimmed and more.
The men came early this morning to fix our overgrown trees.
They worked quickly and efficiently.
I am thankful for the local landscaping company, Rivercreek Nursery, for their hard teamwork.
Due to the cold weather this Spring, they are 3 weeks behind. Let’s hope they can catch-up on their projects.
The sun is out and today is a beautiful day! Let’s hope it that better days are on the way!🌞
