In the Garden

by Gina on June 2, 2010

We spent a lot of time landscaping this Spring and put a great deal of fruiting plants in the backyard. Hopefully these will yield some delicious fruit for years to come!

On the trellis’ – blackberries and raspberries
Front row – Everbearing strawberries
Raspberries are ripening!
Everbearing strawberries have been producing for several weeks!
We have 4 canteloupe plants that are flowering nicely!4 Watermelon plants that are sending tons of shoots!Only two plums so far, but at least they aren’t green anymore!

In addition to these we have 2 blueberry bushes, 1 nectarine tree, 1 elberta peach tree, 2 bing cherry trees, 1 honeycrisp apple tree, a kiwi vine, and 2 roma tomato plants. The strawberries have been producing nicely! Can’t wait to harvest some more (before the bugs and neighborhood kids make their mark)!
