My Teeny Tiny Garden

Most of the daffy's are finished...old-fashion yellow that have lived here since the house was built, pale creamy, newer yellow-centered and pink-centered daffy's, sitting under the window on the counter. It's my new favorite place to enjoy flowers. The blue bottle came from some drops I had been taking and looks pretty sitting on the window sill.
Strawberries blooming...in March?! Oh, I loved this early warm weather we had - it's seasonal now with cooler temps. This strawberry bed is new and small and I'm already thinking to ask MR D to make a larger frame for next year.
I have to cage the lettuce from the Wilde Beastes that surround us to protect these babies. And covered both from the frost that was predicted for this morning...it was chilly but no frost. 
I have NEVER planted a tomato in March! But I'm trying it this year...it's covered by an antique cloche my MIL used to start plants.
And I'm experimenting with a new way of ground prep. Newspapers is not new but the next step is, at least for me - I'll keep you all posted!

Oh, I'm intrigued by your new garden bed method -- can't wait to hear what comes next! Your daffs and antique bottle are so pretty! I should get out and cut some before they're all done. Thanks for the inspiration!

Hi Esther! That's a great start for a garden! I love your yellow and white daffodils! I look forward to your strawberries too! They're my favorite! It's good that you caged your lettuce to keep animals away. You wouldn't want them around your vegetables now, would you?
