Garden Update 3-5-2011


We harvested lettuce today for salads for 3.5 people – Luke being the half.

Tomatoes are growing like weeds and have  flowers already. This one is about to open up.

Major Pruning of the Pear tree was done last weekend, 3 wheelbarrow full of branches removed. It looks much better now. It’s already blooming!

Many of last year’s strawberries have flowers out, I removed the pine straw mulch to warm them up some more last week. Fighting ant mounds among the strawberries. I’ve tried cinnamon, whole cloves, and tonight cumin and cayenne red pepper. We’ll see if they stay away.

Last week I transplanted some Heirloom Yellow Strawberry Plants I grew from seed from Baker Creek Rare Seeds.

Yellow Strawberries Example

Peach Tree is blooming. It looks really good this year.
