We’re not paying as much attention to our garden this year, but I wanted to do a photo update of the things that are blooming and growing!
Last year A. was really into tomatoes, and this year it’s apple trees. This is an espalier apple tree that is supposed to produce six different kinds of apples (one variety on each branch):
Strawberry plants from last year…
More leftovers in the other bed…we’ve had a couple of not-so-great carrots and we’re not really sure what else is in there!
Peonies starting to bloom…by now they’re pretty much done!
We planted a couple of raspberry starts last year. We thought they died and now we’re not sure whether they’re coming up somewhere, or it’s just weeds, or what… But A. now tells me he probably killed this thinking it was a weed and put an apple tree in. 😦 I want raspberries!
Random tree volunteers?
The parsley and mint came back!
Rhodies…by now they’re not looking so great anymore though!
Our purchases from the nursery that we potted but otherwise still don’t know what to do with! Also some thyme groundcover we need to plant somewhere and a tomato plant.
Our anniversary gift Japanese maple…
Not much blooming going on with the azalea this year…not sure whether it’s still coming or I should have watered it more.
I love these hanging baskets!
Artichoke plants in the ground and a couple of apple trees that are supposed to stay relatively straight and short that have since been planted along the fence in the back:
