Had 2 strawberries so far with quite a few more turning red which tasted so
much sweeter than storebought, and some lettuce. Not too much else yet, it's
still early in the season here since got such a late start, but I've seen
baby cherries on our tree, and the tomato plants are starting to bloom, got
a couple baby cayenne peppers, and one of the broccoli plants has a nice
head growing. The herbs are happy(especially the mint and sage), and the
potatoes, onions, and garlic are prolific as well. And I'm making myself too
What would YOU do for a Klondike Bar?
I have to admit my fruits haven't taken too much labor. So far I've
harvested red clover, yarrow, chickweed, catnip and plantain. The
tomatoes are getting ready to bloom, the potatoes are getting tall,
the beans will bloom in a week or so and the garlic has started to
Kate - off to tranplant some flower seedlings
I'm a full month ahead of the last two years, 2 tomatillos, 5, inch long
crooknecks on one plant and others blooming, some Brandywines and San
Marzanos in bloom, 2 California Wonders in bloom, lettuce and radishes a
couple of times a week, strawberries, onions, celery, and parsley in
bloom (yeah, yeah I know but it's purrdy), thyme in bloom, potatoes in
bloom, new parsley and cilantro 7 - 13 cm tall, and I learned, to my
chagrin, that stinging nettle is a perennial here. Sage has been going
nuts (1.5 m. in dia.) for 6 weeks now. It's loaded with bees. Oregano is
recovering from transplant, tarragon in full swing, rhubarb ready for
picking. Lots of spearmint and peppermint coming up. Considering letting
the passion fruit out of its container, and 2 Meyer lemons are in bloom.
Ack, and I'm not finished planting.
"For the first time in the history of the world, every human being
I'm not done planting either, now that the weather is finally warming up.
Today planted some more herbs(echinacea, sage, lemon basil, and oregano),
broom corn, sunberries, garden huckleberries, ground cherries, and more
bulls blood beets. I have a baby parsley, and some celery plants(though I
cheated and bought them since didn't have any celery seeds). Stinging nettle
has cosmetic uses, have been considering harvesting it in the wild or just
growing it in containers here. California Wonders as in bell peppers? Don't
have rhubarb ready for picking yet, bought 2 crowns this year though, and
they're doing fine. Tomorrow wanna find my strawberry spinach seeds.
Farmer's market is less than 3 weeks away and I am so not ready...
After getting off to a slow start and not getting hit with heat blasts, I'm
looking forward to Sunglow corn, Barker peppers, Wonder peppers, 4 types of
Tomatoes..and some scallions planted months ago.
Had good first time luck at the beginning of May with Broccoli and
