I feel like I am never gonna catch up to things this summer, but I still keep trying. I was out in the garden this morning and Neil had cut all the long grass around the edges of the garden with his trimmer, so now I can actually see what is going on out there.
While he was cutting, he said he didn't cut the flowers, and I knew there was a peony bush against the one fence but he says its in the middle, so I go out there and there was a tiger lily, or maybe a woodland lily. They are supposed to grow native out here on coulee banks and stuff, but I haven't seen one in a long time, and certainly not in the garden.
So I got looking around, and it looks like a pretty good year for potatoes, they are flowering and getting big,
And lettuce as well, looks like I had best be eating salads every day!
Some things sure surprise me, I thought I couldn't grow a cucumber, but here is one plant that defied me and grew anyways, maybe I will get some pickles this year.
The crabbapple tree has lots of fruit on it, so lots of jelly coming up,
And the maybe apple tree has fruit of some sort on it, I am still waiting to see what they turn out to be. I cut one open and it looks like an apple inside, but I have never seen an apple that grows red from the start.
The carrots are coming up even if I never pulled all the radishes out yet to make room for them.
And onions, looks like they are doing well too, This is the first year I planted green onions and I sure am liking having them fresh to eat.
I am very glad Kali's elbow is looking way better, kinda a deep cut but really tiny, and no more puss coming out of it and no swelling, so I think she will be alright, but she gets hosed and penicillin everyday. This is it yesterday morning, I took one when she first done it, but of course its on my missing camera.
