I guess we had a week of spring and now we’ve moved on to summer! It’s okay…the weather is more normal for this time of year and our newly planted eggplant will appreciate it.
The whole garden as of today, May 17th. The main visible difference from last week are the trellises. Oh yeah, and the signs. The signs were a ton of work, but I’m glad we got them done and they look good.
Since the Demo Garden is on Garden Tour this weekend, I decided to pull one of each of the garlic and shallot varieties to show the differences at this time of year. I took pictures of each one because there are some very startling differences. Watch for that post next week. This is the ‘Maiskij’ variety, which is getting relatively close to harvest, especially compared to the others. It is a really pretty color too. I know that’s an important factor for an underground vegetable!
This is the ‘Tiny Tim’ tomato that the Hort Therapy group planted in the accessible garden. It is our first blooming tomato plant! The plant is still really small, but it is supposed to stay only about 12-15″ tall. It’s got a lot of blooms for a small plant.
Have a great weekend! Come on out to the Garden Tour if you are looking for garden inspiration!
