Here in southeastern Wisconsin this week’s temps have been in the high 60’s F. We all know this will not last BUT it sure is like taking a vacation to a warmer climate. I have REALLY, REALLY been enjoying the sunshine. My daily yoga has been done on our south facing deck. I love the positive effects this weather has on my mind, body and Spirit. BUT I also know that it is not a positive thing for our planet. I do my best as far as helping Mother Earth recovery from so many bad things. I do want future generations to have what I have had in my life time.

My onion seeds are growing nicely. I have them outside on the deck during the day and in the house at night. Today I will go down to the hoop house and plant a few cold weather seeds. I have the time and the seeds, so I will give it a try. I will first mix some worm poop into the first few inches of the container soil and premoisten the soil before sowing the seed. I’ll let you know how this works out. The weather is going to be back down to our normal temps this week end. Possible SNOW. That is how it is in Wisconsin. I will be starting a few tomatoes and peppers soon. I’ll keep you posted.

Thank you for visiting me. Hopefully you can be starting your plants too. May love and kindness be in your day.

  1. Hi Lark! I happened across a garden tour video you had on YouTube and I’m absolutely blown away! I live in the Madison area of Wisconsin and am relatively new to gardening but my favorite is cottage gardens! Do you have regular tours of your garden? I would love to come see it if you have public tours? And maybe pick your brain on how to start something as beautiful as you’ve made there?

  2. Good morning, Katie. Thank you for taking the time to view my gardens and comment. Much appreciated. Please leave me a ‘private message’ on my FORUM page. I will contact you. Smiles, Lark

  3. Just viewed your spring walk. It is very encouraging. You mentioned that you are trying to block the neighbor’s yard. Have you thought about rhododendron or ligustrum? I now have all sides of my large yard enclosed, and I love the privacy, especially the front on a busy street.

  4. Thank you, Becky. They are both very pretty. I have tried both and gave them several years to ‘look good’. I kept having die out. I even moved them to a different location. I gave them my THREE YEAR trial. Nope they needed to much attention. The deer loved them.
