The dish of shelling peas on the left were picked yesterday and the one on the right was pickd today! I can't believe that my 4x4 ft. square foot bed produced all these! I know it will look like much less when I get them shelled but I am thrilled! Guess what we will be eating for our evening meal tonight!!!!!
Here is a picture of the Sugar Peas. They are loaded and I am enjoying them now too.
This is my Butternut squash. I planted a few radishes around them to protect them. My Wonderful Gardener does not like squash. Can you imagine!!! All the more for me!!
Here are three of my tomato plants and two sweet green pepper plants. My tomato plants really looked bad at first but they have hung in there. The one on the left you can't see very well, but I cut a lot of the leaves off because they looked so bad but it is growing now too! Maybe I will get some tomatoes afterall! I planted some basil seed by one of the tomato plants and only one came up.
This is the yellow summer squash planted here. It is between two square foot beds. Radishes planted around them also.
Free Flowers! These Calendula reseeded themselves from last year. Free is a good thing!
The celery I started from the ends of the boughten organic celery stalks did not do well so maybe I will try from seed next year if I can find the room. The one in front I planted a few days before March 19th (I don't keep very good records!) and didn't soak the stalk in water before planting. The smaller one behind I did soak the stalk in water and planted it on May 13th. I won't toss them yet but will wait a little longer to see what happens.
The lavender is starting to bloom! Some of the leaves are looking a little yellow. I wonder if that means it could use some water?
I love this plant! I received a starter from a friend in Michigan and it reseeds also. I believe it is Rose Campeon but correct me if I am wrong. You probably did not know this but I love pink flowers!!!!! lol
This is my Dwarf Compac Stella Cherry tree that my Wonderful Gardener planted for me last year. It is suppose to be self-pollinating. I wonder if I will ever be able to pick some cherrys from it!
Here is the Siskiyou Pink plant I just planted this year. It is so pretty, but I don't think I planted it in the best spot to show it off. Guess what! It is pink! lol
Speedwell is blooming and dong well this year.
Remember the yellow rose my Wonderful Gardener brought me awhile back on May 26th because I was not feeling well? I can't believe that it is still so pretty! I have not put any preservative into the water but changed it often.
