This weekend, I went outside and took a pics of what's happening at Augsburger Farm.
The irises are blooming beautifully. They always remind me of my Grandma. :)
Blackberries, wild or not, are blooming all over the place. Butterflies and a couple bees were at work here.
One of the kitties, Sweet Pea, is contentedly watching the robins hop about on the grass.
Orange Poppies. Short-lived flower, but I love them!
Chives blooming in the herb garden, with mounds of Oregano behind them, Lemon Balm to the right, and Walking Onions in the back. I really need to get out there and finish up whatever I am going to do in the herb garden this year!
In the main garden, the 5 Color Silverbeets/Chard are coming along. Also, I transplanted some sunflowers and Florellenschluss Lettuce that came up volunteer in the garden. I hope to get the garden planted by the end of next weekend. Hopefully the weather will cooperate!
In case you're wondering.....I neglected the poor indoor-planted chives and they died. :( So, the outside ones are definitely faring better.
I discovered either some volunteer Zucchini or Butternut Squash coming up. I am trying to decide whether to let it grow, just to see how it turns out, or to get rid of it. Since I had both types planted in the garden last year, chances are pretty good that this is a cross. They might grow edible squash, or they might not.
