We got strawberries!
Already? usually they are not good and ripe til the end of June?
We still have a bunch more to go, but this is a great start to our strawberry patch!
We have 3 Garden Boxes:
1st box~ our strawberry patch
2nd box~ 1/3 strawberries, 1/3 raspberries, 1/3 carrots
3rd box~ sugar snap peas, rainbow chard, beets, and celery.
We also roto-tilled a spot for corn~
and we have 2 more pots of strawberries too
(yes, we like them and they are easy to grow!)
Our fruit trees are looking, well, fruitful! yay.
The apricots are abundant this year after 2 yrs of nothingness.
The pears are sparce, but there are a few.
The cherries are plentiful.
and our apples have a decent amount too…
now to wait for everything to ripen!!
Our Potato Tubs (aka garbage cans) are rapidly growing.
The little spud plants grew quite quickly…
I don’t have a current photo, as this one is from a couple of weeks ago, but the can is now fairly full after adding more soil to the ever.growing.plant. Yumm! Can’t wait to dig for “treasure”. I love potatoes!
Do note: I am not naturally inclined to gardening skills.
Quite frankly, I am quite the opposite and seem to have a brown thumb.
I try every year to attempt…something…sometimes…. anything.
I am ever.so.grateful that the kids and I are learning so much about gardening from our neighbor (the other Sherry).
My dream is to someday own acreage where we can apply our new found knowledge! =)
