Our Garden, Growing Strong….

grows….please forgive the obscure Game of Thrones reference (think House Tyrell). But our garden is growing strong, indeed. The hot and dry winter left us without cherries (not enough chill hours) and with withered greens. But our spring onions and potatoes were a delight and the blueberries and strawberries are simply amazing…and plentiful. No complaints.

And along with tomatoes, our other warm weather plants like the eggplant, peppers and raspberries all look like they will have a very good summer. That means we will have a good summer.

  1. It will all come together. Have you tried coyote urine for the varmints. My grandfather used to collect cigar butts and make a spray with that. The raccoons love my figs. We have a huge dog that loves raccoons.

  2. Blueberries (O’Neil) are fabulous now here (Central VA) too.

    I have coined a new phrase…instead of the old standby…” from garden to table” the new phrase is “from plant to mouth” as the blueberries rarely get to the kitchen as many other garden treasures. How about you? Diane
