This is only the second time that I made it out to the garden so I thought I’d update you (since we actually weeded it and all…).
Here are the Zucchini plants – the seeds have come a long way.
These are the other squash plants. They’ve also grown quite a bit.
The cucumbers, watermelon and onion seeds didn't make it. I won't point any fingers (Jon) but someone (Jon) killed my onions (Jon). And the rest I didn't plant correctly.
The grass cuttings have been absolutely amazing at keeping the weeds away and putting nutrients into the soil
Although when it rots, it smells. Really bad. Yuck.
The strawberry plants have some sweet little treats hiding among them. I picked about a bowl-full this morning and have already eaten most of them. It’s like candy. Nature’s candy.
Today we finally put the tomato plants in.
And basil. I love basil. So much.
For my first Mother’s Day, Jon’s mom bought me some perennials (does she know what I love or what!) and this here is a rhubarb plant. Next to my strawberries. Anyone else see something in our future?
Then I decided to take some pictures of some other perennials in my garden. Enjoy.
I love my roses.
I also love my irises. I have these gorgeous blue ones and some yellow ones (they already finished blooming).
And I love eating these yummy wild strawberries or, in Russian, Zemlinika, from our garden.
What are you growing this year? What are you proud of?
