It’s been a busy week in the gardens. Most of the week it was very hot and humid here, then it turned cool near the end of the week. We’ve had so much rain in the past few weeks that most things in the garden are very stressed. All the rain and heat is bringing out the flowers!
The wild mallow is flowering. I love this plant we have both white and pink growing here.The comfrey is flowering like crazy. You can always hear the buzz of the bees and humming birds on this. Most of the phlox has finished flowering, but we still have a few! The tomatoes in the greenhouse are doing great! These are the Mortgage Lifter tomatoes, they’ve grown at least 2 inches in the past few weeks. When hubby was out doing our big bulk shopping trip he surprised me by brining home a pear tree! He knew I had been wanting one and decided to surprise me. It’s a Golden Spice pear and it hardy to zone 3. Since we are a zone 5 it should do well here! He was talking to the owners of the nursery and we were not the only people in the area that lost a lot of trees over this past hard winter. Many people who bought apple trees from them in the past that were rated to a zone 5 died over the winter. The zucchini is starting to get flower buds on them to. I can’t wait for these to start producing.
These are two little flower gardens up by the house. This past week our kids weeded them out and transplanted the bachelor button flowers that they had started for me at Mothers Day.
This week we need to finish building our 3rd greenhouse so we can get the last of the peppers planted.
