Garden Report

Hilled the potatoes. Even the ones that were zapped by the frost seem to be recovering nicely.

Finally pruned the apple trees. One has a reasonable amount of apples for such a tiny tree. But the other has no baby apples. Maybe next year will be better.

Cherries and strawberries are growing nicely. No flowers on the raspberries and blackberries yet.

Lilacs and tulips are done. My columbine is beautiful.

After lots of weeding on Saturday, and two hours of planting on Sunday afternoon, ten tomatoes, three sweet peppers, two hot peppers, a bunch of cilantro, and a bunch of basil are snugged away to grow grow grow.

Looks like the spinach can begin to be harvested, and the romaine needs to be thinned. Onion sets are beginning to poke through; I just put them out middle of last week.

  1. After the squirrels rearranged my spinach seed, I only ended up with 3 plants. I've picked of a couple dozen leaves many times, and it just keeps going. Perfect for one salad or one serving of cooked spinach! Put spinach, tomato, onion, and green pepper in with scrambled eggs. GOOD!
