Yesterday was not only a fabulous day to get outside and play in the yard, but also a good opportunity to do some tending on the front patio garden.
The Tomato baskets need little no no help from me. They are rocking it all on their own! I’ll admit to getting a smile every time I look up from the garden and see their cheery yellow flowers dotting the patio. Soon it will be a flash of red cherry tomatoes greeting my eyes.! (insert drooling here!)
The Alpine Strawberry bushes are doing great! The kid have both managed to harvest a few berries off of each bush, and there is lots more on the way! They are so proud of themselves. Growing strawberries and such! They are such little gardeners!The Herb garden is busting with foliage. The rain hasn’t hurt these covered pots. At the most they just get a sprinkle when it’s pouring out there. I took some trimmings off the plants so they don’t get too long and leggy. This was the pre hair cut shot.The slightly less wild, after shot.With a cleaning also comes the spoils!
In another sunny corner of the patio a new Veggie pot is soaking in the rays. This pot had been holding a perennial, but I found a new home for in in the ground below. Refilled with an Orange California Bell Pepper, Cilantro and Basil, this pot will soon be making it’s home on my mom’s patio (Mmmm, I’m looking forward to those peppers Mom!). Unlike mine back in the raised beds. My mother’s plant is lucky enough to be blooming . A trio of flowers dot the plant, with fruit to come!I also transplanted a few basil seedling into some empty holes in the Herb Garden. Fingers crossed that this weekend is the start of more seasonal weather. A girl can hope, right?
