Time to start harvesting herbs to dry! Here is some lemon thyme and raspberry leaves.
Picked a little oregano and lemon balm too. Even though we have had lots of rain and up and down weather things seem to keep growing!
I was able to harvest this one day. Radishes, spinach and lettuce, swiss chard and one lone asparagus!
I am very happy to see this nice big toad visiting in one of my gardens!
We planted this clematis along our back fence last year. I am so pleased with the way it is growing and love that color!
More lettuce and the following picture of spinach picked another time.
I think this is about the last of my spinach. Has anyone had luck growing spinach in the summer? If so, tell me your secret!
This is my comfrey tea brewing! First time to try this to fertilize my garden is this year. My "wonderful gardener" looked at the water when I ask him to carry it to the garden and said, "Your not going to use that dirty water, are you!" He thought I was making it to drink! It is a five gallon pail so that would be a lot of drinking!
My sheep have finally decided it is warm enough to come out into the garden!
We enlarged our little fountain garden a little. Even though I have not gotten it completely weeded the flowers are blooming anyway!
Another view of it!
My peach tree limb has the peach tree leaf wilt but it has a lot of little peaches on it. They told me to use some organic stuff on it next March but too late to do anything this year except fertilize it and keep it watered. Wonder if I will get any peaches?????
This is my Chojuio Dwarf Pear tree and it has little pears developing. I see the little black spot and wonder if someone could tell me what that is and if it will be a problem. What should I do about it????
You need two dwarf pear trees for pollination and this is my Hosui pear. It has a black spot too. This is my first year to have the little pears developing on them. Sure hope I get to harvest some! I fertilized all my fruit trees. Then Coco became very sick. I worked an organic fertilizer into the soil, watered and put mulch over it. I see she dug holes in the mulch so have an idea she ate some! After spending money to take her to the vet she is doing much better. We have spent more money on this dog then our four kids put together when they were growing up! She has developed a special place in our hearts!
My last harvest of asparagus. Now I will let it grow to develop more for next year. Sure have enjoyed eating it. Can anyone tell me why sometimes they curl around like that one in the picture??
Baking is at the bottom of my "to do" list when it is gardening season! I felt sorry for my "wonderful gardener" and baked him a raspberry pie yesterday. The raspberrys were in our freezer from our yard last year. Wow! I sure posted a lot of pictures this time! Have a wonderful week enjoying your gardens!
