Friday PhotoEssay

Yes, it is Friday again, and time for another photoessay. The garden continues to grow quickly and flourish! I have decided to switch the picture sizes to the smallest size, because it doesn’t take up as much space and it’s quicker to load for you all. The bigger pictures are pretty, just unwieldy!

Pea BudsFinally! This pea plant is hiding some flower buds in the center. I have been expecting them to flower for some time now, as I get increasingly impatient to harvest peas and then pull them out to plant the eggplant.

Ruby Streaks Mustard The Ruby Streaks Mustard in the Salad Garden is starting to bolt (go to flower). Happily, the flowers are also edible and delicious!

StrawberryThe strawberries are beginning to ripen. It is a race between the birds, mice, baby rabbits, and Master Gardeners!

Snake in FennelOur friendly garden snake is hanging out in the fennel this week.

Purple Brussels SproutThe purple Brussels Sprouts are finally looking as if they belong in a garden, rather than the compost bin. Aren’t they gorgeous?

Pansies in ContainersThe pansies are enjoying their last hurrah before they get yanked and replaced with the summer flowers.
