After 4 years of working on the strawberry's we are having a bumper crop. They are big, beautiful and delicious. I was thinking we might have some extra to freeze but the kids keep having snack time in the berry beds!
A friend gave me a wild rose start 5 years ago and it's never bloomed. This year it is blooming like mad and sending runners everywhere. The scent is heavenly. I've always wanted to make rose-hip jelly and it looks like I'll finally have my chance!
Roses and peonies. All pink. All gorgeous. The peonies were here when we moved but in a small circle in the front yard. I moved them against the fence. We have one deep wine color on the other fence and we planted white last year but they didn't come up.
The hosta bed, complete with wagon rims found on the property as we were cleaning up. There's a columbine hidden in amongst the hostas in front of the wind chime. Viking Man rolled a huge log up next to this area and it is lovely to sit here in the heat of the day.
So far I've harvested Swiss chard, several pounds of lettuce, strawberries, parsley. I dried our first batch of parsley yesterday and will do more today. We ran out of everything dried last year way too fast so I'm hoping to rectify that this year.
What's growing at your place?
