Pictures from my garden

Every year I keep a photo journal of some of the highlights in my garden. This spring, we planted a small Tehranivee Sweet Cherry in April. When it flowered, I was thrilled, but didn't expect to get any fruit, this being it's first year and all. But the fruit kept growing ... some of them shrivelled up and fell off, but by the end of July we had a big bowl of cherries. Medium big, sweet, crunchy and tasty ... everything you could want in a cherry. I was in heaven and hope it bears like this every year.
We harvested the hardneck Fish Lake Garlic a few weeks ago, and I pulled most of the shallots today. The raspberries have been excellent and plentiful, as are the wild black currants ... which are scaring me, honestly, because there are so many ... and I feel compelled to pick them.
Only one marrow squash growing on the four plants in the antique wheelchair planter. Lots of tomatoes, but so far, no ripe ones.
This is my Edibles page which I've updated for July: http://www3.sympatico.ca/great/tempee.html
There's a link to my garden page, for those interested in blooms, but here it is anyway: http://home.ca.inter.net/~stevedor/EGarden3.html
Nice to see that some of the regulars are still here.

Very nice pictures, looks as if you have plenty of property on which to maintain your garden, how big is it.
You and Buzby look very nice also.

Looks tasty !
Buzby is a cutie. I have two dogs - gsds, the elder is very much in personality like Buzby and the younger like Curlee - he steals weeds and gardening gloves too. ;-) I used to have a springer spaniel (well, she was my bf's dog who came to live with me a year or so ago) who was rehomed last week - we miss her but her agressiveness to the other dogs was getting dangerous so it was for the best. However the upside is that my edibles in the garden (tomatoes, pumpkin, chilli peppers, sweet peppers, an assortment of herbs, and blackberries) are no longer being eaten off the plants by her !
Nice to see your pages, thanks for sharing.

Curlee has his good side too. He hunts earwigs, and will chase away squirrels. Unfortunately, he likes to bite the trees they run up, and strips them of bark.

Yes, know the one. Curlee got almost all the strawberries, and I've seen him try to gnaw raspberries off the cane, right through the netting. He likes tomatoes too. If they ever ripen, I might be in trouble. On the other hand, I almost hope he tries to steal a cayenne pepper. ;-)

Thanks for responding. :-)

You never know, it might start a beautiful relationship. ;-) I thought mega hot chilli peppers might put my eldest off chewing the furniture when he was a puppy so I bought a jar of them and smeared them on the chair legs and things (yes, it was a mess but I was desperate). They were the most evil tasting things I could personally think of that would put him off (they'd put *me* off, anyhow) but not harm him. I put him out of the room, smeared the stuff all over where he'd been chewing and then let him back in. He came into the room, sniffed around and then went everywhere I'd been smearing the goo on and licked it all off with much relish ! He loves really hot things. Doh !
I gave up after that ... ;-)

It's not all that big, about 40 x 60 ft. But I'm working on completely eliminating the lawn. Every year, a new bed goes in, or an old one gets bigger ... or both.
