My Garden, the Second Week in May

The spaghetti squash is looking good.

The blueberry bush may not have a lot of leaves,
but it has a ridiculous amount of blueberries growing.

I planted these chive seeds last year and nothing.
This year they appeared all on their own.

This is why I'm no longer weeding my garden.
I have a lettuce, carrots and possibly tomato plants appearing mysteriously.

My corn is just so pretty. It makes me smile.
Birds? Someone pulled out a few of the smaller stalks.
I've started some more corn seeds.
The leaves on my strawberry plant are three times bigger than last year.
This is the first strawberry I spotted. There are many, many more to come.
I am incapable of properly pruning my dwarf pear tree.
I tried last year after reading and researching how.
It didn't work. It's super extra big and bushy now.
I wonder if the squirrels will steal all my pears again this year.
I picked up a raspberry and blackberry bush on clearance.
They looked very sad. I never got around top planting them in the fall.
They stayed inside. Leaves grew. They were happy.
Then they got infected with some little wormy things.
Yuck. I put them outside. The bugs died and so did the plants.
They started coming back and it was warmish, so I planted them in the yard.
Then it got extra cold and they died again. These poor plants.
But hurray! The blackberry leaves have emerged.
The raspberry, not yet, but I have faith.

  1. Thanks for tour of your growing garden! Everything looks great! I just started out with tomatoes and jalepeno pepper and so far so good, I will venture out to other foods soon. :)

  2. The strawberry, and every other perennial, will look bigger each subsequent year. As for the mysteriously growing things, certain plants seed themselves, even when they are listed as "Annuals" the initial plant may die, but the seed they drop waits patiently :-)
