I suppose I'll start out with the greenhouses....
|The onions, beets and broccoli are doing great!|
|And so are the cucumbers and radishes. Soon I hope to get pole beans planted between the cukes.|
|Eggplants are flowering!?!|
|The cantaloups are rockin'. I love their heart-shaped leaves.|
|The watermelons are also growing strong. |
I can't believe we might actually get melons!
An impossibility here without the help of a greenhouse... and a dream come true for the kids!
|Hello! Our tomatoes and basil are out of control! Italian, anyone?|
|Our early tomato varieties are already producing lots of fruit.|
|Carrots are up.|
|I sowed these dry shelling beans the other day. They are from seed we saved a couple years ago.|
|I've been harvesting lots of basil everyday.|
|The calendula is huge! Up to my waist and loaded with flowers. It looks so beautiful with the foxglove growing up through it and a backdrop of peas in bloom.|
|I love the inside of foxglove!|
|Chamomile is looking great. I love growing our own medicinal herbs.|
|This sunflower blossom is starting to form.|
|The raspberry thicket is loaded with soon-to-be-ripe berries! And loaded with bees, too!|
|Peas are on... finally!|
Aren't they incredible?
|Blueberries are fully on. Now they just need to ripen so we can gobble them up!|
|Lillies popping up among the spinach|
|The fig is finally leafing out.|
|Our potato boxes are beyond ready for a few more layers of cedar planks and some straw!|
|The apples are full of tiny fruit. I really need to get in there and thin them.|
|Green strawberries.... Come on sun!!! |
It's been a long, cold spring.
We are usually harvesting strawberries by now.
But, these guys are not even showing signs of blushing yet.
|The little chickens love to cuddle in the garden cart!|
|And, last but not least....|
The old man who watches carefully over it all!
