My tiny baby tomato plants didn't make it through the very rainy cold first weekend of Spring Break. I came home to find a couple of shriveled up plants. I went to the store and bought more, only to lose them in a late freeze a few weeks later. I quickly replaced them and they seem to be doing well. I hope I'll get some tomatoes this year.
I planted some herbs behind the tomato box. They took a hard hit with the freeze too. The dill made a major come back (I don't like dill, it is caterpillar bait.)
The lone jalepeno is looking better but something is eating it, I suspect that plant eating dog of ours.
The basil is looking bad. I'm thinking it might be time to go buy another one before it gets too hot.
J planted corn again this year. B planted carrots but nothing came up. The seeds were old. I think this might be my last year for corn. I'd much rather use that box for something else.
The garlic I planted last winter is surviving the dog, I hope. He keeps running back there and walking all over it. Again, I think he is eating the clover that I haven't bothered to weed out yet.
The strawberry plants already have fruit on them. Maybe this is the year we get something out of our strawberries.
We planted some squash, zucchini and spaghetti. There are sunflowers growing behind. I think I'm going to have to move them around. B planted them quite close together. I wonder if you can transplant sunflowers. Will they survive?
In addition to vegetables, I planted a heuchera.
It is looking spindly, but I'm hoping it will grow into a pretty plant like this one I planted two year ago.
Speaking of plants I put years ago, this gerbera daisy bloomed for the first time since I planted it for DH's 40th birthday party 2.5 year ago.
The bloom is fading and the picture's out of focus but I had to include it because I was so excited about the flower. I was surprised by the yellow-orange color too. It should have been red like this one.
The red gerberas are growing like gang busters. I guess it is a good year for gerbers!
