Fortunately, it was easy going for planting in that these were holes dug and prepared in Spring of 2012 when the initial hedgerows were put in. Their predecessors didn't settle in too well , so these are their replacements. Ready and waiting to get busy!
This means ~ Snow Fire Hollow is chock full of elderberry plants, officially and finally! Four varieties, seemingly happy to he here, if the growth so far this season is an indication. There is one particular spot up on the knoll that could use one more, right next to a wee orphan elderberry, sitting alone, waiting for a playmate. But once the playdate begins, the elderberry total is at 87 plants.

More herbs and vegetable seedlings transplanted into the guilds and the veggie beds too, by the H. yesterday in the pouring rain, but he in his glory, rain or shine, in the dirt or muck.
The keyhole garden is also primed and ready now for me to get out there and re-home some of my perrenial herb seedlings.
The seedlings for market patiently waited for today to roll round again. They laughed off the wet, cold weather and responded heartily to the couple stretches ( as in hours) of warm sunny weather.
So, the fare this week will be more Amaranth, Purple Beauty as well as Hot Peppers, Pineapple and Sungold Cherry Tomatoes. Lavender, Lemon Thyme, Chives and eggplant and more! Organically grown, here at the Hollow.
Also, I must mention that we have handmade market bags available, too. So stop in at the booth and pick one up before you shop! And please take along a seedling or three, all ready to "leave" and get to their new homes.
