Sarah's Garden: Outside!

Finally the weather is warm and soon I'll be putting all these guys outside:

In their soon-to-be new home!

Ten feet long by three feet wide means space for lots of veggies and soon there will be a trellis on the wall for giganto-bean, cucumbers and tomatoes.  Exciting!  But there are lots of other things coming back out too, like a little ginkgo:

That little thing spent the winter looking like a stick stuck in the ground but I figured if these trees have been around since the dinosaurs they must be pretty tough.  Same (except for the dinosaurs part) goes for the mint:

This mint has been planted and dug up and replanted so many times I've lost count.  But now they are in a big container so that my entire backyard doesn't turn into a mint forest.

And some bulbs finally came out!

Winter Wolf's Bane:

otherwise known as winter aconite or eranthis but obviously winter wolf's bane is the best name[/caption]

The Winter Wolf's Bane even looks good after it's done flowering:

And here is one little blue squill in the deceased bathtub (RIP):

I also have lots of blackberries, raspberries and strawberries but that "wing" of the yard is not done yet.  Soon!
