Chilly.... with no frost!

My garden made it through the night. With the mornings light and the threat of frost now gone... I headed out to the garden early this morning to be sure everything survived.

Thankfully the temp. only dipped  to nippy 37 degrees.

 Took a few moments to harvest the garlic scapes that were begging to be picked.

I started these beauties a little to early this year and actually worried they were getting root bound in the greenhouse while we waited for spring frost's to pass...They got a little leggy but held in there. I was able to get them into the garden about a month ago. Planting started early this year due to a warmer than usual Spring.

They've filled in beautifully, and have really added a vibrant interest to the flower bed. Nasturtiums are easy-to-grow annuals whose leaves and flowers are not only beautiful but edible, as well!
