Last week, we finally got to plant our veggies!
We are a wee bit late but better late than never. Here is a list of what we planted:
~Black Krim Tomatoes
~Early Treat Tomatoes
~Ceasar’s Lettuce blend
~Baby Red Lettuce blend
Wow! I didn’t realize how much we actually planted until I wrote it down! Our raspberries are coming in nicely and I am starting to think that we need to plant a different strawberry plant next year, as we only have a few plants with fruit (but squirrels or rabbits always eat them before I get to them anyways).
No sprouts from the seeds yet but I’m hoping to see some in the next 4-5 days. Our seedlings are acclimating well.
I wish we had put in a watering system but maybe that will be next year’s project for the garden.
Our peonies have popped and instead of having them fall to the ground outside, I cut a few stems and made an arrangement for our kitchen!
I also noticed this amazing rainbow while I was trying to get some pictures of the newly planted veggies. The pictures really do not do this rainbow justice; I'm pretty sure this was the most amazing one I have ever seen. It was almost turning into a quadruple rainbow.
We have ONE whole peach growing on our peach tree! I’m actually pretty surprised we have the one due to that May 1st snow storm. I was noticing a lot of ants crawling around that tree about 2 weeks ago but when we got home from our trip, I found all these little ladybugs instead… and no more ants!
I love being outside but with the temps soaring so early this year, I'm not quite sure how much I will be able to soak up the sun. At least there are early mornings and late nights that I can appreciate!
