One thing we were successful with this summer was the planting of a lot of strawberry bushes early on.
That planting can quite easily be called a success because late summer started showing some promise already!
Our harvest was small this year…
But the fact that one of the apple trees bore successful fruit is an awesome promise for 2018.
And another garden helper appears!
You just keep doing you worm. Thank you for your service.
Hello little spider. If you were in our house right now, you’d be dead.
Out here in the garden? You’re welcome to stay.
Three years ago, for Mother’s and Father’s Day we planted a “mommy” (non pollinator) and “daddy” (pollinator) apple tree.
This year we are blessed with seeing the hint of two apples on the first daddy tree we planted.
Last year, we planted two more apple trees. This year we planted cherry trees.
We already have a plan that if they successfully ripen we’ll be washing and cutting them and all seven of us will enjoy a slice or two of our brand new fresh apples.
A promise of wonderful things to come.
We just planted these! Here they are, already blossoming and possibly going to bear tiny strawberries their first season in the ground.
We bought quite a few little plants. It’s our hope that they all make it so that we have scads of strawberries soon™.
I don’t think she’s meant to be in those things anymore… Just a hunch.
I think she’s run out of victims to harvest and is still ready to go get more.
The monster front yard vine gave us a lot of little white pumpkins.
We didn’t even plant this thing!
