Spring is the garage!

Last year, we wanted to add raspberry bushes to our garden. We didn't really have the room in the area allotted for vegetables (Dad is always pushing for more tomato plants!).

So we purchased two bushes and planted them in large white ceramic pots and placed them where they would receive full sun. The raspberry bushes thrived, produced good fruit well into to the fall. They produced fruit so long that I couldn't safely transplant them in the ground. The heated garage would serve as winter storehouse for the bushes.

The first day of Spring may be two weeks away, but as far as I'm concerned, it has arrived in our garage.

New growth is popping out all over!

What a nice surprise to find on a cold, overcast day. Both of the plants have survived and are sprouting. Another reason I can hardly wait for warmer weather, home-grown raspberries!

I don't care if it's only in the garage - I am still happy spring is here!
