Garden Update

Hullo! I thought I'd do another garden update! These pics were actually taken over a week ago soo... things have progressed even more!

We have a rambling rose that makes pale pink flowers - they aren't much to look at but the bees LOVE them... Anything that the bees love... that's good with me!

We also have some other roses that are a deeper pink - beary pretty. They are still young and are being trained to come up one side of the deck.

Let's take a look at what else is going on.

Well, we have some new recruits for the garden - some pansies, some upright lobelia and some stock.

Along with some red basil, red cabbage and rosemary (must have been an "r" day when these were bought!).

Ohhhh!!! The strawberries are coming along!

The kale is maturing nicely....

And the spinach is starting to bolt. So the spinach is coming out and the red cabbage and some cucumbers are going into this area. I think we are going to be doing a lot of harvesting this year!

  1. What a prolific garden Sandy! And you look very smart in your outfit and hat. It almost looks like a golfer's uniform...do you golf?

    1. Thanks Droop! I actually am not much of a fan of golfing... although those golf balls make great bowling balls for a little bear!

  2. The garden looks great. Our leafy greens are starting to come up as well. There are a lot of stands selling strawberries as well, ***note, must get roommates to stop and buy strawberries from a local stand***

    1. Oh yes, there is a lot that goes into supervising a garden. Yesterday I supervised as a fresh crop of beets and carrots were thinned out. It is much easier to do when they are little!

    1. We had our first strawberry this evening! It wasn't very big so everyone got just a tiny piece but it was yummy!
