It's always a feast this time of year. Strawberries, raspberries and blueberries for breakfast while watering makes for a fine breakfast. I swore I'd pick and freeze the blueberries this year so I could make blueberry jam and jelly, but as usual, didn't happen. The strawberries were scheduled for homemade shortcake. Yeah, like I thought that was ever gonna be the case.
The hollyhocks are hitting their stride
Lovely, ethereal gaura
And, the 'maters and peppers. I started a bunch of tomatoes back in February. They sat in their six packs, sad and scrawny, until I just said to heck with it, and a few weeks ago I just poked them in the dirt. They were literally the size of small pieces of straw and I fully expected every one of them to die.
I guess I will be canning tomatoes like a madwoman in a few months.....
