It's been a lovely spring here in the Southeastern U.S. Ample spring rains means lush green growth for all of the trees, shrubs, and perennials.
I've battened down the vegetable garden areas for being away (mostly) over the summer. The main vegetable garden is fallow (as I've mentioned before), except for a giant butterfly weed, some perennial French sorrel, and French tarragon -- none of which seem to be root-knot nematode hosts.
In the satellite garden, the garlic beds are flourishing, and will be harvested sometime in June. The asparagus plants are growing well, along with some tomatoes and peppers that I planted in one of the far beds.
Hopefully, any local woodchucks will remove themselves from habitat, without herbs, squash, and okra seedlings to eat!
