Veggie Supports

I added a bunch of support structures to my veggie garden. The fruit trees are blossoming well. Next year I want to start bee keeping a bit. I put out the cucumbers I grew from seed and the beans (underground next to the peas).

Flowers 2.0

After dropping some money in some more flowers, we added 90+ petunias, many geraniums, 4 clematis, and a bunch of other be honest, Jen is in charge of the flowers and I am in charge of the veggies so this is all her. I am really happy, we finally got some ornamental grass. Drip lines with timers were installed and the cucumber starts from seeds look pretty dang hardy:

Tomatoes (and weather) Back On Track

  • We had brief boughts of hail and snow in April but May looks to be better. It is in the low 60's and I decided to uncover the tomatoes and put up cages.
  • The cucumbers in the grow house are looking pretty nice.
  • I also added some automatic dusk till dawn lighting to the dogwood tree for later this summer when we host some get togethers.
  • The fruit trees are also looking nice.
