Although temperatures are still going up and down in Southern Ontario, spring has definitely arrived! In addition to birds singing and looking for a place to nest, grass turning green, and budding trees, I have spotted the first bloom in my backyard, a prodigious yellow daffodil (pictured above). A small forsythia bush is also blooming (photo below), a seminal sign to start sowing cool-weather crops outdoors, such as carrots, lettuce and radishes, and transplant some of the sturdiest seedlings from indoors (more on that in my next post).
Welcome spring! Happy gardening!
