The roses, which were put in the Potager to prevent deer decimation, have been moved to the open perennial/herb garden because they were getting too big for the potager. I will wait and see how long it takes for the deer to find them before I spray them. There's nothing worse than bending down to sniff a lovely rose and smelling Deer Off! (Okay, yes there are lots more things that are worse, but I couldn't think of a better expression.)
The self seeded cilantro was moved into the "salad bed" next to the spinach seeding as they are good companion plants. (They look odd because I harvested them last week pretty heavily.)
It is rather nice to see a row of something growing at this stage in the garden!
The cilantro that I sowed back in February has come up also, which is good, because cilantro bolts so quickly that succession planting is the way to go.
The garlic is doing well and I am so thrilled at the shallots. All but two came up! (You can see them in the last photo below.)
Hubby made a bed on the north side of the potager for sunflowers and four o'clocks over the weekend. (This garden keeps getting bigger and bigger!) We loved the look of Sunflowers in the potager, but they really took up a lot of room and dropped seeds everywhere. Deer will eat small sunflower plants, so we will have to be careful to spray deer repellant while they are small in order for them to live outside the fence.
I still have more to plant that I just didn't have time for, chard, broccoli raab, bunching onions, and more. I'm hoping the nice weather keeps on all week so I can sow after work every day!
In the meantime, here's a happy First Day of Spring montage! Enjoy!
