It just wouldn't be spring if we weren't running behind with everything. The photos above were all taken on May 5. The main feature of all of them is that it's obvious the grass needs mowed. Between preparing for art fairs, traveling to art fairs and all the rain we've received, I'm very much behind with my mowing. I was finally able to attack our garden area with the mower on Tuesday (5/10/11). Now we can at least venture into the garden without having to wade in almost knee-high grass and weeds.
- 1.) Tomato plants are still under cloches.
- 2.) The cloches need to be removed from several tomato plants.
- 3.) Cauliflower.
- 4.) Chinese cabbage.
- 5.) Lettuce, spinach, chard, radishes directed seeded into the garden.
- 6.) Broccoli.
- 7.) Potatoes.
Our irises are well into their blooming sequence. We don't grow a lot of flowers, but have gotten into growing irises because friends gave us rhizomes when they thinned their beds. The flowers are beautiful, and irises are one of the few flowers deer won't eat.
