Some flowers to appease the neighbours as my food production has now officially spread to the front yard.
Following Erica’s beautiful virtual garden tour (I love her orchard), here is one of mine. My orchard is newly planted this spring and something attached my apple so I don’t think we’ll get any apples this year, but I’m optimistic it will be productive and looking great in a few years. Berry season has already started and we have as much salad and broad beans as we can eat. I’m looking forward to tomatoes and cucumbers!
The backyard garden (this time stormtrooper free). And look at my ridiculously tall hedge – my kind neighbour came over and trimmed it for me.
Broadbeans ready to eat
Carrot seedlings – I planted them rather late
There are lots of radishes – this one I may eat today
Last year’s chard I left because I’m curious what the flower would look like.
An odd-looking Egyptian onion in front of an absurd amount of chives – way more than I can use.
A bed of tomatoes
Hot peppers and eggplants – I’ll be building a greenhouse over them shortly.
I just planted some mint under my dripped water barrel – perhaps a foolish idea. If the mint threatens to take over I’ll have to weed-wack it back
The raspberries are starting to ripen.
The blackberries and tayberries are blooming
Blueberries are now in the deer-proof fortification out front.
Proof I should never go the the nursery alone – I went to get my mom flowers for mother’s day and came home with two hazelnuts.
