I'm so behind it's not even funny. This was taken weeks ago... the peonies (two bushes on either side) have already bloomed and even dispersed already. I just wanted to at least show you the iris in bloom. Wasn't it so pretty?
I really love the hanging basket we got from my mom for Mother's Day. It's so unique looking and the blooms are beautiful.
Update on the garden! This is right after some rainfall and before my weekly weeding. You can't see it yet but I actually have NINE tomato plants growing (mix of Tiny Toms and Steak Tomatoes).
Here's one of my tomatoes- currently the biggest one right now. This is the reason I love growing from seeds. Once it grows, there's just that much more pleasure knowing you did it from scratch.
The Great Lake Head lettuce are coming along nicely too.
My peas! They grew all over the place despite the bamboo sticks so I had to double the bamboo sticks to keep them upright.
The raspberry bushes. Not sure if we'll get some this summer. This is my first time growing these so I'm not sure.
Forgot to show you the mint section last time. We used to have a lot of mint but then we uprooted it all because it was getting out of control. Now I'm trying to regrow them and I'm replanting and relocating any little mints growing in the garden in this little section.
I also harvested the garlic chives twice now and the green onions once. That's why they both look like they've been taken back.
This is after weeding and layering on some good rich soil. Also, notice anything that doesn't belong in this photo?
