|I'm not sure if the petunias can|
recover from all the rain, but I'll
try to save them.
|This is the rose bush my daughter|
gave me for Mother's Day last year.
I planted it near the strawberries
not realizing the berries would
reproduce so much.
|I had to deadhead a lot of the geranium|
plant, but this plant seems to like the
|My monster blackberry plants. The fence|
is six feet tall and the plant is taller!
I dumped half a packet of cucumber seeds that were left from last year in a big pot thinking if I got three plants, I'd be happy. Every seed planted has produced a plant. When they get a bit larger I'll share them with my daughters. I also found out that I could plant another bean plant in the pot. I put in three seeds and hoped for one plant. I now have three more plants from expired seeds.
|Cucumber seedlings love the rain!|
|The large bean plant I have been getting |
three beans a day off of it. I eat them raw. Yum!
And that lettuce I planted that came from the refrigerator? OM gosh! I have a new lettuce plant that I've put on the bottom shelf of the planting table to keep it cooler. I'm hoping to gather from it all season.
|I love when experiments show|
results. The wilted lettuce from
the refrigerator is doing great.
I've been harvesting quite a few strawberries this year. A few have been over ripe so I had to pitch them back into the soil. But, I've gotten a quart of them so far with lots more to come. I can't prove I have gotten a quart because I keep eating them. My intention was to make jam, but they are so good, I snack on them all day. I did freeze half a quart so far, so it's not a total loss. I'm thinking this year's jam will be mixed berry. LOL
|This is about half of yesterday's harvest.|
The beans in the backgtound will
be gone this morning.
