I realize it's been awhile since I joined Annie at A Stitch in Time for Friday Smiles. You can always find her smiling link on my right sidebar if you want to visit. She's warm, welcoming, and always has a smile, even when life seems at its worst.
Today we are headed for the garden.
while this one was taken Thursday morning after the downpour and high winds from Wednesday night/early Thursday morning. Look closely at the pots in the two images, and you can see how much these herbs have grown in the past two weeks.
It's obvious my tomatoes have taken hold and are growing nicely.
Although the veggie garden sustained a bit of damage, everything is doing very, very well.
A few words of garden wisdom interspersed with the photos hopefully makes the photos more enjoyable.
Two weeks ago I first harvested my dill. I was so happy this volunteer dill came up, because the seeds I planted didn't turn into plants.
May's lemon mint
and orange mint look good since they were mere cuttings I received on my birthday.
Yesterday they were very healthy
I simply adore this positive garden, even if I have no squash.
One veggie I do have is a bell pepper plant. Here it's just taking hold in late May
and here it's looking very healthy in mid-June.
To save a bit of time, I'm only going to show the raspberry bushes from yesterday. Most of the flowers that were so beautiful last month have now turned to genuine fruit in the making!
A plant that didn't exist last month is this one I'm propagating for my friend Scott. I could have cut the plant from its parent, then added root hormone, but chose to take the easy way out and just plant the stringer that was headed for the ground, anyway. Later this year, when I'm sure it has rooted, I will cut it away from the parent plant, and present it to him.
