First day of the Market

So last Friday was the kick off to the new season at the Farmers market. There were a bunch of good prizes given out and a really big cake to share. Lots of old vendors returned from last year and a lot of new vendors joined in. One of the fun things that happened was a guest appearance of Bailey The Buffalo Jr. . People got to see, pet and take a few photos of the year old Bison.

The fun part was his grand entrance. Riding on in through the big doors of the hall. He was right up front enjoying his ride in the open top car. This was great fun for all who attended to see.

This weekend should be a good weekend. The sun is out and we should be done with frost and snow until the fall.

Out In the Garden

I was working away today in the garden and thought A photo of how the martagon lilies are doing would be good.

This is a smaller patch of martagon Burnt Orange coming up. The tallest is about six inches high. The garden is starting to look really good so far. The weeds are not coming on to fast and the clean up from last year is close to being done.

Lots of old stems and peony tops to be cleaned up yet but we are over half done. The asiatic lilies are just starting to show life in the odd spot in the garden. Now a bit of steady rain and some warm weather should really get things growing.

Lily Scales - Update

Well it has been a bit of time and the scales are growing very well. New little bulbs have started putting out leaves. This is a first time for me seeing them leaf out so soon and so quickly.

The little bulbs are of good size and are ready to get moved in to some potting soil.

As you can see from the photograph lots of leaves starting to reach out for sun light.

These scales were started on March 13, 2009 and keep on growing. They seem not to want a cold period and will hopefully continue to grow and size up. By this fall they should be a rather good size if they do not go dormant for the season.
