These are our peas...they are really starting to take off. I'm excited about this and our green beans, not pictured. This is our 3rd year of gardening...and we've not had success with either. So, yeah...I'm excited.
I let them climb the little fencing it makes a perfect trellis. I drilled holes in the top edge of the bed boxes and just poked the fence into the holes. (...no exact measurements...we just eyeballed it)
I must say... I've never put much stock in these little fences from the Dollar General stores...but Elaine at Sunny Simple Life used them in her garden and it deterred her chickens from scratching in her beds and pots. So I decided to get some... They work! it keeps the chickens OUT!
Now if it would just keep the dog out!!!
This is not in the same bed...but our tomatoes are finally getting some blooms on them... I started these from seed. I had them all marked...I don't know why I bother really, because it never fails, my markers either get toppled or rearranged.... :/ So these are either Early Girls or Big Boys !
If I get some soon...it will be the first year we get tomatoes AND lettuce at the same time.
I'll get to have a real BONAFIDE SALAD! home grown of course. :)
This is my wisteria... if you remember...we had a frost and this bush was loaded with flowers. Usually the bumble bees (BIG AS MY THUMB) are all over this thing when it blooms. Well, we lost all the flowers. Not the bush. Since the weather has been mild...we've had sporadic blooms come and go. My grand-daughter, Bree took this photo...
This little squirrel is being sneaky... you see what's in the corner of this picture right?
"Rocky" on deck! Though, not really nefarious...definitely sneaky!
Hope you're having a great week so far and enjoying gardening, weather and outdoor fun!
