july 4th update

The holiday weekend has come to an end and I return to a full work week – c’est la vie, as they say. I had a relatively nice weekend. I spent some of it in the garden – mostly maintenance and taking photos. The tomato plants were pruned of over grown leaves and I did my best to clip off any sucker growth. If you don’t know what I mean by sucker, click here, or do your own internet search – you will find an abundance of information and opinions.

A few tomato plants are developing tomatoes, namely the Spear’s Tennessee green tomato and German Red Strawberry.

a future tomato…hopefully.

Speaking of strawberries, our strawberry plants are developing their own fruit!

The butterfly gladiolus are blooming pretty flowers. I see why they are called butterfly gladiolus.

And I just could not resist taking a few more photos of the chive blossoms. I love their color.

Lastly but never least, my comfrey continues to flower. They’re like a curtain of bells. I think this year is the best year it has grown, four stems of an abundance of flowers.
