|Ti tree - very happy against the back fence |
with that ancient wreath for company.
I quite like the bright pink against
the weathered wood of the fence.
Over the winter we took out the white Babcock peach that neither of us liked (that I mistakenly bought when my eyes were blinded by garden lust that day at the nursery) and replaced it with a yellow peach that promptly burst into gorgeous bloom and will hopefully provide us with bushels of peaches.
|Apricots!!! Tons of them.|
The apricot tree went berzerk this year
and is covered in fruit.
Fingers crossed that the birds leave us some.
Still got lots of space out there so on the kitchen in small pots are yet more tomatoes, peppers, and cukes, plus some broccoli. Soon as they're big enough, out they go.
|Nectarine tree in bloom. It has the most gorgeous flowers.|
Large 2" dia pink blooms that remind me of a moss rose.
Planting the onions sets was a pain. 80 of them. Hands and knees. Scrape bark aside. Poke hole with dandelion digger. Stuff onion set into hole. Scrape dirt back over hole and tamp down. Fluff bark over dirt. Scoot foam kneeling pad 4" backwards. Wash, rinse, repeat.
