One of the trees this year has shared fantastic fruit with us. The other two… well, one seems a bit spotty and moldy for some reason and the other just didn’t produce much. Probably need more of our pollinators to be developed enough to actually produce flowers.
Doesn’t stop me from admiring their growth as the summer progresses.
This summer was a bit of a bust for most of our garden. Higher than normal temperatures being the main limiting factor.
Redflare’s dill didn’t seem to mind though.
Mr Toad decided to hop by as I was mowing so Redflare jumped to the rescue so he’d be unharmed.
Released into the safety of the strawberry patch. Go forth and eat some bugs so we can enjoy the last few strawberries of this season!
Redflare’s Dill continues to grow quite well.
Seems very happy where it is.
Yep, some of these pictures are slightly out of order. Oh well.
We’ve already raided the strawberries at this point on the blog picture wise, but how about stopping to appreciate the flowers that gave us such wonderful berries?
The garden hasn’t been cooperating much this summer. It’s mostly because the weather has been weird too. We didn’t get a spring, so with Redflare’s heat sensitivity it’s harder to get out there and plant all the starts.
We did manage to plant some new asparagus roots this spring to expand our patch for the future.
While the strawberries are in full swing the apples hint at a promise of things to come.
Looks like we may finally see some fresh, home grown apples this year!
