We were searching for morels in the woods this afternoon. We didn’t find any yet but we did spot another…

False Morel

I read that false morels (which are poisonous) pop up a few weeks before the real thing, so we will have to keep hunting! While I was hunting for morels, Baby was hunting for coyotes. And rocks…

An unruly mess of seedlings

An unruly mess of seedlings

The date of our last frost is usually around April 21st, but I was getting impatient (and it has been quite warm) so I have already planted lots of things; including peppers and eggplants; which I will cover if it gets cold. There is zero rhyme or reason to this year’s planting. Things are going in the ground, that’s about all I can say about it! Spring is a wild time. The weeds are growing like crazy and little seedlings popping up everywhere (and for a time I’m not always sure which is which!). The tiny, fragile seedlings are hammered by wind and hail and pelting torrential rain. It’s a wonder any little plants survive spring in St. Louis!

    Gorgeous gardening futures there Ms Spy. Love the first tulip, your whale rock and let us know if baby finds any coyotes under those rocks…

        If you love dogs, it would be hard to not love coyotes, especially with a lovely coyote looking dog like Dexie of your very own :)
