Garden Update

It was rainy and gloomy all day yesterday until about 6:00 in the evening, when all the cloud cover blew over and it became clear and sunny.  I ran out to get a few pictures since there is a lot more rain in our forecast.

Dogwood tree.  One of my favorites.

Our raised beds.

Collard greens.

Blueberry blossoms.

Swiss chard on one end...

...and spinach on the other.

Peas.  Some are starting to bloom.

Chives.

Scarlet runner beans and pole beans.

Kohlrabi, cabbage and other such things.

Strawberries are starting to set on.

Mixed lettuces.

Front to back:  radishes, romaine and beets.

Looks great! You will be harvesting in no time... if the sun ever returns. : )

Your gardens look wonderful. Hope the storms missed them last night.
We survived well, but St Louis sure got hit!

I'm praying for some sunshine!

Wow, this is a great beginning to the summer growing season. Your area is about 2 months ahead of our own.

Miranda: You getting any sun down your way? At least we didn't get the storms that St. Louis did last night.

well done in getting so much out before the April showers started. Raining, raining, raining here in Kentucky too!

Love your garden! you have lots of space and I guess your area is much warmer than ours because we're still getting frost at night.

Dmarie: We caught a break and it's sunny today after all. I need to go out and do something...either just some general clean up work, or maybe plant my canna bulbs in front of the house.

Jenny: Hi! Thanks for stopping by. Where do you live that you're still getting frost?

Your garden looks wonderful! I have 7 raised beds filled, but I can't put out my tomatoes, peppers or eggplant for another couple of weeks and all chances of snow are past.
