What’s in the Garden? – K

March 11, 2016

We are March-ing right along into the month with items in the garden that start with K.  Friday’s Hunt is the letter k, a favourite and a flower this week.

The kitchen garden is a big part of my garden.  I grow tomatoes, potatoes, beans, peas and lots more.  My husband made me three plant tables a few years ago and most of the veggies grow in large containers.  These are right by the deck and it is easy to pop out of the kitchen and pick some fresh food for meals.

Kale is one of my favourite veggies and I do grow some in the kitchen garden, but must admit I buy most of it from the veggie stand at the corner of our road.

I use old keys in my garden art.  When made into a key wind chime they make a lovely soft tinkling sound.   I also used old keys to make a stepping stone.

The kestrel comes looking in the garden for prey from time to time.  At first I thought this was a different hawk (sparrow hawk) but thanks to knowledgeable visitors, bird books and research on the internet I now know what to look for in a kestrel.  The kestrel photos have to be my favourite for this week.

I needed a K for my alphabet collection and while dismantling an old umbrella stand part of the framing looked just like a K.

For Five on Friday I’m including the kitchen garden, kale, keys, kestrel and K.

Friday’s Hunt  is up to the letter K this week, with a favourite and a flower.

My flower for K doesn’t grow in the my garden but is a houseplant. The kalanchoe has gorgeous blooms and this particular variety is a calandiva.

Todays ABC Wednesday is bought to you by the letter K.

K for kestrel, keys, kale, kitchen garden and kalanchoe.
