Expanding Our Garden
Remember last year’s foray into growing strawberries? Remember the pathetic harvest that was barely even a pint? I think we’re going to do better this year.
Whatever we did (which is nothing more than watering and weeding) seems to have worked out pretty well. There’s several dozen blooms this year and they’re much bigger than they were last time around. Emboldened by this new-found success, we decided to branch out with another addition to the garden, what we are going to do first is to contact tree removal Dallas company so that they can cut some trees down to have more space.
That’s right, we’re now also growing some tomatoes (Celebrity ones to be exact). The plan now is to keep on adding plants one-by-one until we’re growing everything we want. Shauna had an idea to put up some trellises for beans along the side of the house and go with my idea to turn the west part of the yard into our official gardening spot. Cucumbers and carrots and lettuce. Oh my. Dinner’s at our place.
Dude… I’m there..
Unless cucumbers are sliced, then I’ll make like a car and Audi.
Will there be strawberries when I’m there, or is that too early?
very nice…my strawberries look like that too! Now if only the dang berries would start turning red…
I think we should have strawberries through July and some tomatoes around then too.
We got 4 pea pods off our plant earlier this year. We made a stir fry with them. It was most triumphant.
We had a strawberry once, but a bird ate it. Not triumphant.
We have strawberries in our JMG garden at work already. Well, not the BERRIES, but the plants. Even before we have kids to work on them. Because dang it WE WANT BERRIES!
I love how strawberries multiply… YAY BERRIES!
We/ve already picked 2 gallons and had Strawberry shotcake and jam. This year the cherry’s were very scarce
shotcake, eh? Was that .22 caliber?
Still waiting on my berries to turn red…lots of ’em…just green…
I had some of the aforementioned strawberry shortcake.
Be jealous. It was delicious.
Andrea gets everything good. Pizza… shortcake…
I think it has something to do with living in California…land of milk and honey, uh pizza and shortcake.
Not true! If you guys lived in Utah, I would more freely be able to shower you in pizza. Plus, we’ve got strawberries here (as you can plainly see) too!
yeah andrea…what about it??? Cute kids don’t hurt either…..c’mon, you know you want to!!! Oh..and Rock Creek Pizza, you haven’t HAD pizza until you’ve tried that stuff! It’s flippin’ tasty!
