Rhododendron in its’ glory
2011 Tomato Experiment-it’s doing really great, this is J’s early girl in a 5-gal bucket, planted a few weeks before the ones in the ground in half compost, half garden soil and fertilized with some alpaca manure
Compared to one in the ground (at right), also fertilized but much smaller. Tons of hot peppers behind.
Broccoli & cabbage, slowly growing
Lousy exposure but the corn is up!
The asparagus is almost done but we had some on the grill last night that was excellent
My little row of tomatoes (hard to see with the fresh grass there), 3 Amish Paste, 1 Mr Stripey, 1 Black Cherry, 1 Old German.
My yellow squash just came up (J bought transplants for his a few wks ago so I’m behind a bit). Cage will leave shortly, it’s just there so I don’t step on them.
My pickling cucumbers, I started these in peat pots, they’re ahead of J’s and already have some secondary leaves. They’ll stay in this little cage & climb around it, space is limited, this worked well in the past.
Peonies almost open!
Some flower seedlings…I was testing some old packets, some came up, some didn’t.
Very late tomatoes but again, old seed I wanted to move out. Some Cherokee Purple, Amish Paste, one little Bloody Butcher. No clue where I’ll squeeze these into the garden, maybe in the flowerbed, lol.
And lastly, I’d about given up on the nasturtiums on the porch that I planted with some dwarf marigolds but they’re up. Thanks for visiting.
