I've been redesigning my page for a cleaner layout, I hope this is it! I'm extremely frustrated because all my photos disappeared then Blogger keeps giving me problems with the post editor not showing things like they should. Arrrggh it's madness working on the issues for hours, I still have to re upload over 100 photographs! If you happen to read one of my older post and images are missing, I'm currently putting them all back. I'm new to the blogging world but I can't believe all the trouble I'm going through. Have this happened to anyone before? I must vent...HELP!
Nothing much are blooming in my garden except the same flowers in containers. The newest from last week was my lovely pink Geranium, she's adding summer color. I have such small space that I'm limited to planting more flowers, besides it doesn't make sense if we might be moving soon. If you're new here, I wrote about it a couple of weeks ago. Although we're uncertain when this cabin will sell, I have to be prepared to take all the plants with us (if possible) when we leave.
Sweet Quinault and Sequoia Strawberries were beginning to ripen in the garden bed but some kind of terrible bug consumed them. I noticed small bites in the fruit so that was disappointing! A few Strawberries were alright so I added those in our salad for dinner.
I barely have a chance to photograph Hummingbirds because they're shy but you can tell they love the feeder!
Looking back, only 2 months ago nothing was growing in the raised beds. My husband lovingly built all the Cedarwood boxes including the low budget yet sturdy fence to protect my garden from hungry deers, rabbits, and coyotes...The deers visit often but thankfully no damage to my garden.
For vegetable garden progress update: Today the raised beds are filled with veggies sown mostly from seeds growing lush and healthy. I'm waiting for everything especially Tomatoes, Peppers, Zucchini, and Beans. Idyllwild have a short growing season so I'm curious to see when we'll get to harvest. Vegetable gardening is testing my patience but it's absolutely rewarding to watch plants grow vigorously.
I started my Tomatoes from seed and check them out taking over the beds! I have 7 varieties with a total of 12 Tomato plants, all have tiny green tomatoes except the 3 Heirlooms with only flower blossoms.
Cherry Tomatoes are popping up nicely in clusters, I'm hoping for sweet juicy Tomatoes to ripen soon! At first, I wasn't aware the packet of seeds I purchased were indeterminate so the plants are becoming enormous, I had to tie them up and keep them from shading other vegetables! I have much to learn and next time things will be planned out better, I'm taking notes.
My edible garden is a labor of love! I'd like to hear what everyone is harvesting in their veggie gardens. Any gardening advice for a newbie? I appreciate it and have a wonderful week!
