Gorgeous Greens – Spring Garden Photos

In honor of St Patrick’s Day and the first day of Spring right around the corner, I thought I ‘d share some gorgeous green spring garden photos with you.

grapes

Vitis vinifera (Thompson seedless grapes) RAISINS! at least that’s what I will probably make with the fruit in the summer.

 

strawberry

Fragaria × ananassa (strawberry) I grabbed a few sets of bareroot strawberries and I don’t remember which this one is. Hopefully it will live and we will get a strawberry or two this year.

 

artichoke

Cynara scolymus (Globe artichokes) So far I don’t see any flower stalks but the plant is HUGE this year.

 

sweetpea

Pisum sativum var. macrocarpon (Sugar Snap Peas) from Mary’s Heirloom Seeds (not a sponsor, just a recommendation if you are looking for organic non-GMO seeds)

 

coffeeberry

Rhamnus californica (California coffeeberry) No, it doesn’t really grow coffee beans.

 

manzanitaberries

Arctostaphylos – (manzanita) They do look like little apples, don’t they? They are only about 1/4 inch across.

 

sunsetmanzanita

Arctostaphylos sunset (sunset manzanita) I love that the new growth on this plant looks like a sunset and then turns green.
