How Does Your Garden Grow….Sparks, Nevada…early May 2009

How is everyone’s garden out there in northern Nevada?

I’m getting a slower start than I did last year. But I figured I’d wait to finish planting until May 16th, when I get my heirloom tomatoes and whatnot from the UNCE Master Gardener Plant Sale.

Here’s what is poking their heads up so far ~

Garlic and Red & Yellow Onions

Two of the three Horseradish plants are up and about too! I’ll get pictures this weekend. The carrots just woke up.

And here are some pictures of the front yard….looking much better now that we yanked those stupid Junipers out! See all those rocks below? Those are what we pull out of the ground when digging. Lots and lots of river cobbles.
