We were fortunate to have good rainfalls and thank goodness the April frosts didn’t do any damage to my young plants.
Lee was busy digging away.
The look on her face when she saw her bird house.
I don’t know who is trying to build a nest. It is a lot of stuff trying to fit into a small little house.
I made a trellis for the snow peas two weeks ago and it is made from crape myrtle branches that Bo cut down before the Spring of this year. As you can see the crape myrtle tree in the background and the new branches look healthy.
It looks like they are climbing pretty well now, but I had to train the vines to climb at the beginning.
I have never planted pole beans before and I think they need to climb also.
I’m also training the grape vines to climb and will need to make a trellis for the climbing spinach vines soon.
My mom used to plant the spinach vines at the refugee camp in Thailand and it is called pak plunge in Thai.
I planted these pickle cucumbers from seeds, they should be climbing the A-Frame in a week or so. It is amazing how fast they grow.
Chili pepper plant.
These are my second batch of radishes and I put them down in time when the ground was still cool. They are fast growing and should be ready to harvest in a month or so.
I do love basil and planted many this year.
I planted this one in a pot and a good thing about it is that you could move it around.
More Thai basil in pots.
I think it must be the rain that made everything grow so fast. I couldn’t believe how big my cherry tomato plants have gotten.
The mints and pennyworth plants.
My gardenia plants are budding.
My blueberry plants look promising this year. I just hope that the birds will save some for us.
I would not take my chance in eating these mushrooms.
I was hoping to take a few exposures of the birds. I sat and waited and waited, and they flew right by.
The fish are so happy with the new waterfall.
Lee’s white and silver Butterfly Koi has gotten a lot bigger this year.
Bo’s ginkgo tree.
The peach tree bears many fruits this year.
Bo’s walking path is almost completed. He still has to fill in the gaps with sands, and so far it’s looking real good.
