This is my spinach harvest. I also harvested radishes, pak choi and lettuces. My spinach was bolting and the radishes are about gone. I cut all the spinach in one of the containers and plan to plant something else. Maybe a cucumber. I sure have enjoyed having spinach in my salads! I did freeze just a little to try in a quiche.
This is another container of spinach that I had. I thought maybe I could keep it longer by moving it into the shade but it is still bolting. This is part of the harvest that I showed plus we are having a little in our salad tonight and mabe will get enough tomorrow for our salads. I haven't decided what I will replant in this container. Does anyone have any suggestions?
Guess what Coco is doing!!!!! I had pulled some radishes from this container and left just a few that had not matured. She discovered them, pulled them out and ate them. I was thinking about planting a vegetable in here but now know that it would be eaten by a little brown furbaby. So I guess I will move my lemon balm over into this spot and try to keep it under control. So far she has not sampled the lemon balm.
A wonderful bee on this flower is working hard for me!
The Stella d Oras are starting to bloom and bring a little sunshine to our yard.
The Blackberry bushes are blooming. I wonder if I will get enough blackberries to make it worth the pain of the runners spreading!
I had been putting thyme around on the ground to try to keep the cabbage butterflies away but saw one land on a cabbage and a hole in the leaf. So I laid a piece of thyme right on the top of the cabbage. Can you see it? I have not seen a butterfly in the cabbage area since so hoping it will work.
Red and Green Lettuces! I think it is as pretty as any flowers!
Yippee! See those pea pods! The shelling peas should be ready to harvest soon. The sugar peas should follow shortly after I hope!
My Galardia seems more vibrant this year than it has ever been. I wonder if it is the extra heat and warm weather that we have had lately. I am glad that I can still enjoy looking at the gardens even if I can't be out there doing much work right now. Happy Gardening to everyone!
