Three of the tomato plants are already producing! Noticed several teeny toms yesterday while out in the front beds. I can hardly wait. I never liked tomatoes until I started growing my own. Now I crave them when the season is over. Funny how homegrown, organic goodness can turn the taste buds around….
I also am almost finished with the bamboo trellis’ for the pole beans and cukes. They are growing rapidly. I got all the structure done and about half the twine up, am about to head out and work on it some more.
My ornamentals are filling in beautifully! First year they sleep, second year they creep, third year they leap! This saying is proving true for my perennials out front. The plants that are on their third year are really taking off nicely! It seems that there are huge amounts of growth everyday right now. I am loving just hanging out in the garden.
The back flower bed definitely needs work. Those rascally chooks of our’s ate the new seedlings, so it’s just the established plants right now. I am seriously considering a small iron or picket fence. Whichever I can find that will fit the budget. I don’t like fencing off beds like that, but if it means that the plants have a chance and I don’t have to leave the chickens cooped, then it may be worth it. Suggestions are always appreciated!
How does your garden grow? Hope it’s all green and fun! Peace!
