Friday PhotoEssay

Once again, things are growing fast in the garden this week, and we are finally getting a little bit of rain!

One of the apple trees was in full bloom earlier this week, but that’s past now. All the petals have dropped. It remains to be seen whether or not any of the flowers were pollinated.

The Chinese Cabbage is getting absolutely huge. It should be starting to curl up into a loose head any time now.

Compared to the tomato transplants, the peppers are looking as healthy as can be! It’s kind of a switch for me, since I usually have great luck with tomatoes and moderate with peppers. Everything would really like to be spending more time outside, but the wind has been a little much.

The radishes haven’t minded the weather one bit. In fact, I think the roots are just barely starting to swell. We should have radishes in another 10-14 days.

I did manage to sneak the peppers and tomatoes outside for a few hours one day though. Tucking them around the currant bushes shielded them from the worst of the wind.

Don’t forget that you can follow us on Twitter @TheDemoGarden!
