We have had lots of rain and lots of sunshine and the garden is growing by leaps and bounds. All the plants are getting big, big big. Everything is loaded with blossoms. Like the tomatoes.
I even found some developing fruits on the tomatoes that were trying to hide.
Squash blossom buds.
Tiny ground cherries.
In the orchard things are looking good too. This first year pear has developing pear fruits. I would have been happy for this tree to pollinate the existing pear tree.
Crab apple babies.
And tint apples developing.
On the flower front, these marigolds are just vibrant.
Bright yellow pansies.
The Shasta daisies that we planted at Daisies are starting to get bigger.
I started some lettuce seedlings to fill out the deck planters. The deck rail planters are getting pretty decimated by the amount of salad that we have been eating.
Remember the gooseberry bushes that our neighbors gave us about a month ago? Me thinks they might actually be currants. they are bright red and too small to be Gooseberries.
I can’t wait to start harvesting some of this tasty stuff. I know that we are going to be lousy with produce around here real soon.
