Garden update

It's been a couple of weeks since I last posted a garden update so I thought I'd do one.

Our blueberries are doing great, I look forward to never finding one because the boys have already eaten them all :D

Our latest addition are the corn seedlings, we ran out of space at the designated area so we have two "corn hubs" and hopefully will enjoy yummy buttered corn later this summer!

There are hundreds of tiny pinhead-sized grapes, they're the Concord variety.

Orange tree from our friends:

The pea and bean vines are doing their climbing thing, my oldest loves to eat them right off the vine.

First time growing potatoes so I can't wait for these babies to be ready to harvest!

Looks like we'll have pumpkins for Halloween - and soup!

My yellow roses are blooming daily, just love them.

I hope our squash is as good to us this year as it's been the past two years.

We have enjoyed a few strawberries, juicy and sweet - yum!

My lavender is also doing well, I made sachets for Christmas gifts last year. I am very happy with my garden and very thankful for all my husband's hard work! Hope you enjoyed the little update!

Oooh! What a lovely garden! Wow--I'll try not to be jealous. You are doing such a good job. I bet you can't wait to harvest everything.

We haven't been getting any rain at all and are having to water to keep our flowers and grass alive.

But the wild blackberries are ready for picking! Thanks so much for sharing this wonderful garden update. :o)

Bonsoir and Merci ~ Oh my, your garden is growing in so well! I still have weeds from last year, and only one yellow tulip:(. Some catching up to do! We appreciate your visit to French Charmed and are happy that you entered our "April In Paris" giveaways. Wishing you the best of luck in the remaining two! Merci and Happy Spring ~ Chelle

This was posted on April 19, and I can't even plant yet! We had frost last night... I need a little California in my life.
