Things are really starting to happen in the garden this month. We have the main Garden all prepped and ready. I’ll be getting everything planted over the course of the next two weeks. The teepee in the back is support for my pole beans.
The strawberries are starting to flower. Hopefully we will have a bumper crop this year. I need to build a cage with some netting to keep the birds out. Last year they ate most of our harvest.
The garden boxes are cruising right along. I lost a few broccoli plants in a huge wind storm a few weeks ago, so I have a couple of squares to plant, carrots maybe? I think I can squeeze another batch of radishes in before it gets too warm as well.
The lettuce is lovely and is providing several big salads a week. We will be sad when it gets too hot for fresh from the garden salads. I think I may need to start a few seeds in my basement under the grow lights and see if I can keep us in salads that way.
The raspberries are growing like crazy. I even saw a few flower buds yesterday so we may have our first crop in a few weeks.
The sticks in the mud, aka the Blackberry Bushes, are starting to show signs of life too.
And, the tulips are on the way out. They were super gorgeous this year. I need to decide if it is time to dig them up and divide them or let them go one more year.
Well, that’s it for May in my garden. How is your garden growing?
